In September, we will begin a weekly book study in English on Pre-Post Racial America: Spiritual Stories from the Front Lines by Rev. Sandhya Jha. As the Chalice Press book review reads:
Those people. Their issues. The day’s news and the ways we treat each other, overtly or subliminally, prove we are not yet living in post-racial America. It’s hard to talk about race and racism in America without everyone very quickly becoming defensive and shutting down.
"What makes talking race even harder is that so few of us actually know each other in the fullness of our stories. A recent Reuters poll found 40% of White people have no friends of other races, and 25% of people of color only have friends of the same race.
Sandhya Jha addresses the hot topic in a way that is grounded in real people’s stories and that offers solid biblical grounding for thinking about race relations in America, reminding us that God calls us to build Beloved Community."
The class will take place on Sundays at 1:00 PM. We will begin on Zoom, and gather in the church courtyard as weather permits. Please contact Pastor Kathryn (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
