Become the Beloved Community: Sacred Conversations on Race
Time & Location
About The Event
Please join us on Mondays in Lent, for Become the Beloved Community: Sacred Conversations on Race. Beginning on Monday, March 11th, and continuing for 4 Mondays through April 8th, St. James will join with First Church of Christ, Farmington, our neighbors, and share in conversations around race, racism, privilege, and possibility. We are going to encourage the sharing of personal story and engage in holy listening. We readily, all of us, acknowledge that conversations around racial difference, prejudice, and challenge are very difficult. We want everyone to know that we enter into these conversations a) with courage, hope, and honesty understanding that b) we are held, protected, and loved by the grace of Jesus Christ. Jesus will be with us, nudging us forward, through the power of the Spirit, as we gather. Each Monday, beginning on the 11th, we will start our conversations at 6:30, but offer a light meal at 6 p.m., for anyone who would like to join us. Note that all Monday gatherings will be held here at St. James in the parish hall! Please signup if you plan to join us and note whether we should include you for supper, too!
