Sacred Conversations to End Racism

September 27 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

In this Anniversary Year we are mindful that one of our most meaningful and precious commitments as a congregation is to our calling as an Anti-Racism Church. Part of that commitment is to regularly meet to study, discern, learn, and grow what it means to do the work of anti-racism in our lives, our church, our community, and our nation.  

Over the past 17 years, we have shared together in Sacred Conversations to End Racism. Once again, as our program year begins so do these sacred conversations. This year, they are part of our preparation for a remarkable live theatre production that we will be hosting in October of To My White Friends Who Know Me by Deborah Plummer.

The play seeks to answer the question, can we have authentic friendships across racial lines? This frank, funny, enlightening play thoughtfully examines race relations through the lens of cross racial friendships and their untapped benefits.

The playwright, Deborah Plummer, is a psychologist, educator, and founder of Getting to We, an organization that develops and promotes charitable initiatives and educational projects that turn us and them into we, especially in high conflict, emotionally charged social issues such as racism, sexism, and heterosexism.  We are so pleased to have Dr. Plummer join our Sacred Conversations on Race, on Wednesday, September 27 at 7:00 p.m. over Zoom.  

We will also meet in preparation for the play on Wednesday, October 4 at 7:00 p.m., also over Zoom.
