This Lent we will be focusing on diversity and inclusion as we study the book “me and white supremacy” by Layla Saad. This is a book that asks readers to participate in a 28 day journey of reflection about white privilege, their behaviours and attitudes. Rev. Molly has read this book and found it to be honest, accessible, thought-provoking, and powerful. While the subject challenges many of us about our core beliefs, we also feel it is time that we as Christians do some of the hard work required to change ourselves and the world around us.
Revs Molly & Caroline will be leading this book study along with a special guest each week. We will hold the study by Zoom on Tuesday nights from 7-8:30 pm. Our course will begin on Tuesday February 23 and last for 5 weeks, ending March 23.
You are welcome to join us for some or for all of the sessions. If you cannot make the course, we would still highly recommend you read this book on your own, and engage in the reflection exercises within.
If you are interested in attending this book study, please email Rev. Molly or Caroline or Kim in the office (firstname.lastname@example.org) to sign up. You can go ahead and acquire the book as well – there are copies available for purchase in our local Chapters, online, on Kobo, on Amazon, and local bookstores (e.g. Books on Beechwood). Molly can help you obtain a copy of the book if you are unable to order online.
