MISSION BOARD SPONSORS ADULT EDUCATION SERIES BEGINING  JANUARY 15 

On Sunday, 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

 

This series 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.

 

Attendant to 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.
