Wednesdays, September 9th – October 14th at 7 pm
The United Methodist Church has declared that racism is a clear and present danger to black and brown people in our country today. The death of George Floyd under the knee of a Minneapolis police officer triggered subsequent demonstrations and reinvigorated the “Black Lives Matter” movement for racial justice.
Pastor David and Deacon Vivian will be exploring issues of religion and race online in a weekly Zoom study of six sessions titled “Imagine No Racism” beginning Wednesday, September 9th and ending on Wednesday, October 14th.
“Imagine No Racism” is a response to a pledge that delegates to the 2016 Northeastern Jurisdictional Conference and the College of Bishops made to work together as United Methodists to fight the scourge of racism. The General Commission on Religion and Race along with the Upper New York CORR created this series with the belief that everyone is capable of doing something to resist racism, and that as Christians we have a responsibility to be educated and to act to eliminate racism in our society.
Please contact Deacon Vivian or the church office with your name, email address, and phone number (indicating whether it is text friendly) if you are interested in this study. Learning about racism couldn’t be more relevant in our society today!
