Sign Up Now for Racial Reconciliation Workshops!

Saturdays, October 31 & November 21, 9 am – 12 noon

Don’t miss the chance to participate in a virtual, two-part workshop on Racial Reconciliation offered by our Public Theologian in Residence Rev. Riana Shaw Robinson! Rev. Riana will only be with us through December, so you’re encouraged to take part in this workshop, a gift she has graciously offered our community.

Our time together will take our decades-long work to dismantle systemic racism to the next level – by sharing our personal & collective stories of race, power, privilege and faith, we build deeper understanding and connection at this pivotal moment in this country’s history.

Sign up here for both Parts 1 & 2 so we’ll know to expect you.

The workshops will take place Saturdays, October 31 and November 21, 9 am to 12 noon. A good distraction from the national political situation!

Here’s a workshop description from Rev. Riana:

Humans tell stories to make meaning. We tell stories about “us.” We tell stories about “them.” We need to understand who we are, where we come from, what we are for, and why we struggle.

Over two half-day sessions, we will explore our individual and collective stories of race, power, privilege, and faith. We do this work because the stories we tell, believe, and embody have the power to dismantle the systems of white supremacy and anti-Blackness and bear witness to the kin-dom of God.

  • Discuss the differences between how the world is described in verse 2 and verse 31.
  • When was the last time that you experienced God’s glory through God’s creation? When was the last time it was hard to notice God in a season of darkness?
  • Why does it matter that the Bible begins with the creation of the world that God declares “very good”?
