Julie Lustic, Vikki Nowak, Melanie Alban, Linda Martin, Danielle Cosgrove, and Lisa Vahey read and discussed Me and White Supremacy together this past year. We have continued to meet in our small group and are currently reading and discussing The Color of Compromise by Jemar Tisby. We wanted to offer another opportunity for anyone who would like to have conversations about Me and White Supremacy.
We are inviting all of you, if you are interested, to join us in our upcoming book study of Layla Saad’s Me and White Supremacy: Combat Racism, Change the World, and Become a Good Ancestor. The book study includes reading, written reflection, conversations and prayer in a small learning community (online, via Zoom).
9:30-10:30 am, Sunday mornings July 11 and July 25; August 8 and August 22

This week marks one year of COVID-19 in our community. Here’s a prayer that may help your family reflect on the past year. Share some of the feelings you’ve experienced and name some sources of strength and grace you’ve discovered. How have you felt God’s presence in your lives?

In this year when everything changed,
when we felt worried and weary,
when we wailed and we wondered, you
gave us a promise…..
Nothing can separate us from your love.
And nothing will be wasted.
With you at work, light, live,
love, and liberation, always
