We're seeing in these days the stubborn persistence of white supremacy. We're also seeing the resilience of hope, as thousands upon thousands of people have mobilized in the streets, again and again, to call out racism and hatred.

Marches and actions are necessary--but so is the slower, longer term project of asking hard questions about our history and our present.

It's never too early to start.
To that end, Ovid Amorson, our Coordinator for Children and Youth Ministry, and Priscilla Tennant, our Field Education Student, will be presenting a very important Adult Study series. "Talking to Kids About Identity, Privilege, and Racism: Some Things Two People of Color Think You Should Consider" will run on February 12, 19, and 26.
These three weeks will offer the chance to discuss and practice how to tackle the often awkward topic of race in America. This will be particularly geared toward parents, but you don't have to have kids in order to take part in the conversation. These are questions and issues that are important at any age.
Adult Study meets downstairs in the church at 9:30 on Sunday mornings. Childcare is available.
