Race and Justice (Feb 2022)

For February, our focus is “Race and Justice,” as we ask hard questions about why it is that Christian faith has been so often complicit in so many different forms of racial injustice – from imperial conquest to slavery to segregation, the list goes on and on. Rather than being at the forefront of resisting racial harm, white Christian leaders have time and again offered rationalizations, prevarications, and other diversionary tactics. Throughout our study, we’ll ask: What can we do? Consider joining us for:

  • Webinar with Kelly Brown Douglas, as we read and discuss her latest book – Resurrection Hope: A Future Where Black Lives Matter. This live event will take place 9:30 am – 11:00 am Pacific Time on Saturday, February 12 (recording available afterward on the network platform)
