Synod-Wide Book Study Begins August 4th
The synod's Just Love Team invites you to join an end of summer six-week book discussion on Black Fatigue: How Racism Erodes the Mind, Body, and Spirit by Mary-Frances Winters. Winters has a distinguished history of helping organizations of all kinds address diversity, equity, and inclusion. Black fatigue is about how history, policy, practices, and unaddressed disparities generate cycles of weariness and stress that take a heavy toll on people.
The online sessions will run from August 4th through September 8th on Wednesday evenings from 7:00-8:30 pm via Zoom. A special Facebook group will also be created on the synod page for ongoing discussion. The Zoom format will include a brief presentation on the weekly reading, breakout groups in chat rooms, and a plenary sharing session.
The book can be purchased at Amazon or any bookseller. Registration is required by August 3rd. To register, click here.
This is a wonderful opportunity to connect with Lutherans across the state to discuss issues that are important to our society, culture, and church. We hope you'll plan to attend!
