St. Paul’s will offer several opportunities this fall to engage in thoughtful discussion about racism and racial justice and about how you might become more actively involved in creating the Beloved Community God calls us to. All offerings will take place via Zoom.
Space will be limited, but more opportunities are being planned for 2021. There are no pre-requisites for participation in any of the fall groups.
Two books will be offered as individual 90-minute discussions. Both are challenging memoirs written from a faith-perspective by Black women, and each is about 200 pages long, making them a good entry point for conversation.
You do not have to sign up for both to participate.
Sep 27, 2020, 4:00 to 5:30 p.m. — “I’m Still Here: Black Dignity in a World Made for Whiteness” by Austin Channing Brown. Sign up here.
Oct 4, 2020, 4:00 to 5:30 p.m. — “Becoming Brave: Finding the Courage to Pursue Racial Justice Now” by Brenda Salter McNeil. Sign up here.
Later in October, we will offer a multi-week book study of a lengthier title. We will also launch the opportunity to watch an equity-themed movie and then take part in a discussion about issues it raises. More information will be available later in September.
Already available is a curated list of resources found here on the website. Contact information is available there if you would like to suggest additions.
