Conversations on Race: for congregations

These discussions will provide a space to thoughtfully reflect on the reasons why we are still talking about race today (locations, significance, impact). How does the US racial legacy including origins, foundations, and operations inform and influence our behavior? How do the ongoing consequences and human costs of our racial legacy hinder the possibility of reconciliation and community? How do we as people of faith begin to acknowledge and address this racialized legacy within our families, communities, and congregations? What can transformation mean — what shall it look like to transform racial arrangements and practices toward a Beloved Community?
