INFORMATION ON SIGNING UP

WHAT IS THE SACRED GROUND RACE DIALOGUE SERIES?

Intended for small groups, Sacred Ground is an 11-part film and readings-based study that creates a safe space for difficult, yet respectful and transformative dialogue on race and racism. It promotes empathic,   prayerful listening, in confidentiality, free of argument or judgment, and 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. This curriculum,   grounded in faith, was developed by the national Episcopal Church: (www.episcopalchurch.org/sacred-ground).   We join you in prayer as you discern this opportunity.
