A Film-based Dialogue Series on Race and Faith

Sacred Ground

 
I know some of you have heard about this wonderful curriculum produced by the national Episcopal church, and if you haven't heard about it you will want to know more.
 
  • 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. Judy Davis and others will be leading this program so please let her know of your interest. The program is 11 sessions but will not be held consecutive weeks, rather perhaps every two or three weeks. It will be held on Zoom so no need to drive after dark!
