A sober look at racism: Living Into God’s Dream

  While the dream of a “post-racial” America remains unfulfilled, the struggle against racism continues. 
  Living Into God’s Dream is a report from the front, combining personal stories and theoretical and theological reflection with examples of the work of dismantling racism and methods for creating the much-needed “safe space” for dialogue on race to occur. Its aim is to demonstrate the ways in which a new conversation on race can be forged.
  Dr. Connie Holmes will facilitate a workshop examining the movements of white privilege to white supremacy, understanding the rational for reparations for slavery, developing cultural humility and appreciating the limits of solidarity while yet becoming conscious allies.
  This workshop includes lunch, but an RSVP is required.  Prior reading of the book is not essential, but participants should have a copy of the book to participate fully in the workshop.  A few copies are on sale for $15 in the St. Mark’s office or by email at:
