Summer CH@Ts: Recap
Over the past 8 weeks members of the congregation have gotten together after church to talk about race and injustice. We have spent the bulk of our time together talking and listening to one another, creating and enjoying a safe space to talk about sometime difficult topics. During the week, we have the opportunity to do some learning and self-education by reading articles, watching videos, interviews, documentaries, and books. It has been humbling, exciting, honest, and nourishing for all who have attended. We continue for two more weeks. Then we will begin the shift from learning into action. More information will be coming soon. We encourage all to join us, whether you have been thinking and talking about race and injustice for many years or are slightly hesitant to even begin the discussion. We all need to learn, and we believe the church’s call to be Christ’s body in the world means engaging in deep conversation, honest listening and sharing, and working together to create a more equitable and loving world. You will have opportunities to engage in many ways throughout the fall. Please find one that works for you!
