White Privilege: Let’s Talk
A UCC Resource for Transformational Dialogue

 

There have been several conversations both inside and outside of worship, inside and outside of church, homes and schools about race. We know this is not an easy subject to broach and so for the most part we avoid it or offer platitudes instead of engagement. The UCC, under the direction of our General Minister and President, Rev. Dr. John Dorhauer has created this resource to support and challenge churches to enter into conversations about race and privilege. This will be our Lenten study. We will meet on Wednesday evenings at 6:30 p.m. beginning March 8. The hope is that those who join in will commit to the entire study so we can build trust, community and all get the full picture that this resource offers. (however if you have to miss one – please do not let that keep you away!)
