    Summer Forum Series begins June 6

    4-Week Course with Rev. April Johnson – Sundays in June      at 11:15 am via Zoom

    Join us for FCC’s Summer Forum series on becoming a pro-reconciling and anti-racist church community. This series will kick-off with a 4-week course led by Rev. April Johnson, Minister of Reconciliation for the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). We will meet weekly on Sundays from 11:15 am-12:15 pm via Zoom for the month of June. Join us!

    To participate in Rev. Johnson’s 4-week course in June register HERE.

    Session One: Defining Messages and Moments

    There are many terms used in the conversation about race and racism.  We will explore the genesis and language that surrounds the ministry and message of anti-racism and pro-reconciliation.  Participants will discuss “why” anti-racism and “what” does it mean to us in this reflexive moment for racial equity and justice. We will define anti-racism terms and together, build a shared language for each.

     

    Session Two: Power of Our Story

    In this session, we will take a look at the ways ‘story’ perpetuates the reality and myths about race and racism.  If race is a social construct, how is it a sustained reality in our current context?   I will address the three difference expression of the misuse of power in racism.  We will look at how story and history inform our interpretation of race and racism.  Luke 13:18-21

     

    Session Three: Parable Party

    In the bible Jesus used parables to help people think about how power worked in their context and how power would work within God’s kingdom. Thinking about our own context, how would you rewrite the parable for “The kingdom of God is like today?”

     

    Session Four: The Miracle Story

    In this session, we will re-visit the topic of “knowing your why.” What would your miracle story look like if you prayed for an end to racism?  How would you know in your work, your home, your church that it had happened? We will begin to draw a picture and a plan to be a part of God’s unfolding miracle story to disrupt racism where we are and where we have influence. We will take our miracle stories and turn them into a next steps action plan.
