Seeing Ourselves in the Work of Racial Reconciliation

How do we reconcile the sin of racism? Can we? What is our personal obligation? What must we do socially and spiritually?

This year, our Lenten Study-Series will feature the provocative work of I Am Not Your Negro written by James Baldwin. In 2016, Filmmaker, Raoul Peck documented and completed much of what Baldwin was envisioning at the time of his death. This film and book will take us into the difficult but enlightening examination of race in America. Each Wednesday, we will view a portion of the film followed by discussion. The Lenten Study-Series begins on Wednesday, February 21st at 6:30 with a light meal. The film screening will begin at 7:30.

Toward the end of Lent, we will have more involvement with the book, I Am Not Your Negro. You are encouraged to order it online and use it as a Lenten devotional and study-companion to the film.
