BOARD SPONSORS ADULT EDUCATION SERIES BEGINING JANUARY 15
January 15, the Mission Board will begin a new 6-week program on racism. The
title is: "Does Racism Require Intent?” It will be explored using the
“White Privilege—Let’s Talk” curriculum published by the national office of
the United Church of Christ in 2016: http://www.uccresources.com/products/white-privilege-lets-talk-a-resource-for-transformational-dialogue-pdf-download
reflects the urgency in our church and in our society to address divisiveness
related to “whiteness” and “otherness” which continue to undermine the
Christian values of equality for all that we in the UCC have long cherished,
even from the days of the Amistad.
the curriculum, readings will be available though not required. We had an excellent
turnout for discussion of this topic last January-February and hope that this
new series will build on that and lead us to ways to act as allies against
”otherness” in our individual and societal lives.
