21 Week Anti-Racism Challenge | Week 15
Are you looking for ways to engage in the work of anti-racism? Are you having trouble finding the time or the right resources? Our 21 Week Challenge is just for you! The 21 Week Challenge is aimed at providing an accessible opportunity for congregational members to better understand systemic racism and to inspire local community engagement. Inspired by similar challenges across the country, this Challenge was developed by the YWCA Greater Cleveland. The Living Water Association is grateful to partner with the YWCA in hosting this Challenge.

First UCC of Austinburg
On November first, Rev. Bill Terry and worshipers at the First United Church of Christ in Austinburg planted 500 white marker flags in remembrance of more than 234,000 citizens of the United States, (and counting) who have died due to Covid 19 and its related effects.

During worship, the traditional list of names of church members who passed away, during the previous year, was read with a candle and the toll of a chime. After church, there was a brief dedication and invitation to fill our church yard with the flags to honor the fallen victims of Covid-19.

As of November first, each flag represented over 460 lives lost.
