Adult Education Session on Sunday mornings
Let’s read & discuss this book by Robin DiAngelo
Sunday mornings September 6, 27 & October 4 & 11 from 11am to 11:45am online via Zoom (meeting ID: 4159243782).
Over the course of the last couple months our Sunday morning adult education class has been focused on race and racism using the material “Dialogues on Race.” Each week we read a short essay by a number of different Christian leaders, watched a short video and discussed the issues that arose.That “Dialogues” class, current events, and the fact that the ELCA is the “whitest” Religious Group in the United States, have led us to continue to pursue the issues of racism and white supremacy. To do this we will read together and discuss the book, White Fragility: Why it’s so Hard for White People to Talk about Racism by Robin DiAngelo.
The goal is to learn about the concepts the author presents in the book and grow in our Christian understanding of personal and systemic racism and white supremacy. The first half of each class will be a presentation summarizing the material on which the session is based. In the second half we’ll discuss questions that arise out of the material.
Each session we will strive to create a safe space to discuss these difficult issues with mutual love, grace and mercy.
Who is this for? This class is for everyone! Each session, no matter how much you are able to keep up with reading the book, or whether you’ve been to previous sessions, will be relevant and revealing.
Until further notice, classes will be on Zoom (Meeting ID: 4159243782)
A service of song, silence and contemplation
Our Taize worship service is temporarily ON HOLD until we are able to gather together again in our sanctuary.
This beautiful reflective service of music, scripture and prayer, originated at the Taize Community in the Burgundy region of France. Our service follows closely the original service (many of the hymns/chants we already sing in our services) with some minor adaptations. We will worship in quiet and candlelight.
The Taizé Community is an ecumenical Christian monastic fraternity in Taizé, Saône-et-Loire, Burgundy, France. It is composed of more than one hundred brothers, from Catholic and Protestant traditions, who originate from about thirty countries across the world. It was founded in 1940 by Brother Roger Schütz, a Reformed Protestant.
