How do we, people of faith who are committed to the work of recognizing, naming and deconstructing racism in our church and world, begin to understand the lives of others with whom we have very little contact? How do we understand what is happening in our country related to race and social unrest? How does learning about the history of our area help us build healing relationships? How can we share what we learn with our congregation and community?
These questions and others helped form the initial discussions of the Anti-Racism Team (A-RT) at Peace First. Here are some of the ideas and actions that we will explore and further develop:
Through prayer, study and conversation the A-RT endeavors to think critically, act faithfully and follow the compassionate and peaceful path of Jesus as we learn of the many forms of racism in our church and society.
We meet monthly on the second Thursday of each month at 6:30pm at the Peace First Lutheran Uppertown campus.
ALL ARE WELCOME. Please join us!
