Join us for a day of listening and reflecting on how the need for Racial Reconciliation affects our daily lives. Learn some startling statistics; hear some personal reflections; and enjoy conversation with fellow Episcopalians. Lunch is on us!
Thanks to a generous grant from the Roanridge Trust we are ready to further our Racial Reconciliation work here in Northern Indiana. Our work (and the grant) is specifically focused on providing leaders in our rural and small-town faith communities both with an understanding of the way in which healing the particular types of racial trauma specific to their communities is crucial to the success of their ABCD efforts, in engaging in their communities, and in understanding themselves to be leaders in the healing of that trauma. Speakers include members of the Gethsemane Episcopal Church Racial Reconciliation team and our Becoming Beloved Community representatives to The Episcopal Church have also been invited.
We invite you, all of you ... lay, clergy, young, and experienced alike, to attend this workshop as a kickoff for our Roanridge project. Be a part of this important Becoming Beloved Community initiative from the beginning!
