The committee for Becoming the Beloved Community will resume the series of Racial Healing Dialogue Circles beginning Sunday, September 13. The discussions on trust building and story telling are completed. The new focus will be on Sacred Ground, a curriculum developed by the National Church to explore racism in America from the 1700s to today. There will be six weekly meetings. Videos and reading materials will be distributed a few days before each session. Participants are asked to watch the videos and read the materials before attending the class. Online links will be provided for access to the Sacred Ground website.
We still have two openings in our groups for these sessions. We will be keeping a waiting list for the next racial healing groups. Once we enroll 9 participants, we will repeat the program in a new group or groups that will last 10 weeks. So please let us know if you are interested.
