Reconciliation 201: Race, Racism and The Gospel
October 14th, 2021
Occurring Weekly on Zoom on Thursday Evenings until November 4th
$75 Virtual Access Per Registrant
We are thrilled to offer Reconciliation 201 starting on October 14, 2021. As we continue to intentionally establish long-term relationships and invest in pursuing racial justice and reconciliation, Transform Minnesota is excited to continue our partnership with OneRace Atlanta to bring their Reconciliation classes to our network!
At the heart of Reconciliation 201 is the need to dive into KNOWING the story. During this course, we will seek to understand the construct of race, and evil of racism. We must have a transparent awareness of our history and the invention of race to know how it has played out in our society.
We will learn the history and the intersection of racism in America and the Church. This will reshape some of what we know about race relations today. In order to “do”, we need to see the history and current realities of racism in America correctly.
To fully appreciate our part in healing, moving forward, and being an active participant in the work of racial reconciliation, we must know the story of race, racism, and the Gospel.
- Why is it so important to understand the history of racism in the Church?
- What are some specific examples of historical racism that we see playing out today?
- Why is lament so important? Why do we as believers need to mourn over the pain of our shared history?
• Session Two: Lamentation and Knowing Our Story
• Session Three: Know the Story: Racism and the Complicity of the Church
• Session Four: Title will be released soon!
