Upcoming Events

SUNDAY SEMINAR "Race, Privilege and Faith.” This week we will be exploring more about the Equal Justice Initiative (EJI), specifically its efforts to encourage a new era of truth telling around our history of racial injustice. We will learn about local efforts connected with the EJI’s “Community Remembrance Project,” which is designed to enable communities to document and commemorate every lynching that occurred within their boundaries. We will also hear an update about research going on here at SPC to document our own racial history. Next week, we will begin exploring Jennifer Harvey’s book: Dear White Christians: For Those Still Longing for Racial Reconciliation. Books are in the office. ($20 or pay what you can. Also available on Kindle for $1.99). All are welcome. Childcare provided. For a detailed background, see SPC website link
