Sacred Ground


  • Sacred Ground is a sensitive, prayerful resource that creates space for difficult but respectful and transformative dialogue on race and racism.
  • It invites participants to walk back through history in order to peel away the layers that brought us to today, reflecting on family histories and stories, as well as important narratives that shape the collective American story.
  • It holds as a guiding star the vision of beloved community – where all people are honored and protected and nurtured as beloved children of God, where we weep at one another’s pain and seek one another’s flourishing.
  • The invitation is to form a dialogue circle or circles in your congregation that would meet for 11 sessions to engage with the films, videos, written materials, and each other – a study group essentially.
Rev. Benjamin Badgett and Shannon Heady and will be leading this program so please let them know of your interest. The program will meet twice each month after church from October through June.
