As children of God, we are constantly being prodded and asked to think about the ways in which the kingdom is being built up around us. This requires us to think about inclusion and exclusion, especially in the light of current racial inequality -- but also in the light of the long history our country has with racism. As thinking Christians, it’s our responsibility to study, reflect, and grow in the ways we practice inclusion and the recognition of ways that we practice exclusion -- either inadvertently or by choice. This is an opportunity for all of Wake Forest Presbyterian Church to
the work of understanding racial inequality that is part of the continuing journey of racial justice.
June 22-July 13 (zoom reflections July 14 and 15)
Friends at Myers Park Presbyterian Church in Charlotte, NC have come up with a
21-Day Racial Equity Study
that comes from Dr. Eddie Moore Jr., a PhD in Educational Policy and Leadership Studies.
Participants are invited to pick a different resource to engage with every day for 21 days. Resources range from TED Talks and curated online videos, books, podcasts, and more. Diversify your understanding by doing some of each. There is a tracking tool provided in the link above for you to journal about the experience.
You will be exposed to voices and perspectives different from your own. At the end of these 21 days, we’ll come together on Zoom on July 14
and July 15
to reflect on the experience.
Be The Bridge
Monday evenings, July 20-August 10, 7:00-8:00
In this four-week study we will analyze ethnicity, implicit bias, prejudice, and racism, all with the goal of increasing our self-awareness and self-reflection when it comes to race and how we engage with these issues as thinking Christians. More information to follow.
