Establishing Sacred Ground in Beloved Community
Are you interested in reading, watching, and learning:
- about the history of race and racism in America
- the impact it has on our world today
- and engaging in meaningful conversation about change?
Are you interested in working with a small group:
- to share your story
- to discover how race and racism have impacted you
- and engaging in meaningful conversation about what you learn about yourself?
Please consider joining us to do this work in small groups in a program produced by the Episcopal Church called the Sacred Ground Dialogue Series.
WHAT IS THE SACRED GROUND RACE DIALOGUE SERIES?
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.
HOW OFTEN DO WE MEET?
The frequency of sessions can be according to your group’s needs. Recommended: Every two or three weeks (weekly would be too dense, monthly might be too infrequent). There are 10 sessions in the series.
