Our Adult Education committee is actively pursuing ways for our congregation to stay connected, and learn, through small groups, new classes, and incorporating technology. Stay tuned for further developments, and if you have an interest in helping in this effort, call the church office 919-847-1913.
Organized around key topics in America’s Original Sin: Racism, White Privilege, and the Bridge to a New America by Jim Wallis, we will be informed by selected passages from the book; engage in small group discussion to facilitate mutual understanding and action; and be strengthened by scripture and prayer. Between sessions, participants will be directed toward public domain videos that will introduce us to fresh insights and voices, especially those of our brothers and sisters of color.
Led by Rev John and Rev Diane, this class will be an opportunity for us to learn together. Small group discussions will be facilitated by a volunteer leader to make sure conversations are respectful and all get to share and to listen.
Participants will need to register by June 26 and must be able to access Zoom with both audio and video. Upon registering you will receive an email with the Zoom link and some pre-class materials to review.
