A FILM AND READING-BASED DIALOGUE ON RACE AND FAITH IN AMERICA
This year, parishioners at St. Bart's and members of neighboring faith communities are invited to participate in a journey over the sacred ground of racial introspection and reconciliation. In this 10-part series developed by the Episcopal Church, we will walk through the chapters of America’s history of race and racism, while weaving in threads of family story, socio-economic status, and political and regional identity. Goals include:
- Examining the impact of white privilege
- Learning how and why racial inequalities are perpetuated in contemporary American society
- Gaining a deeper appreciation for other cultures and experience
- Fostering greater awareness of and deeper empathy toward others
- Increasing self-awareness
- Engaging with issues of racial identity and difference
- Developing tools to better navigate the world as faithful Christians
- Intergenerational dialogue - high school age parishioners welcome
