Sacred Ground Dialogue Circle this Week
Wednesday, Sept. 16, 6:30 pm
The clergy of St. James invite you to join them in participating in “Sacred Ground.”
​We have been having stimulating discussions each month, and we are still welcoming members to access the material and work through this powerful curriculum by the Episcopal Church on the subject of race and faith.
In the course of this 10-part series we are reading materials and viewing videos which could transform our hearts and enlighten us as fellow human beings. Each part of the series is rich with reading and viewing. So, we are allowing a whole month for each section to help participants take it all in. Each month we will meet in "Dialogue Circles" to discuss our experience of the materials.
