    July 25: Practicing Anti-Racism in Our Bible Study

    FCC’s Sarah Lynne Gershon will lead this conversation after we first watch a sermon from the biblical scholar Miguel De La Torres on the Canaanite women. Then, we will consider the ways De La Torres’ experience as a Latino person contributes to his understanding of this passage, why it is important to engage diverse voices in our small groups and classes, how we have already been doing this and what we would like to do in the future.

    August 1: Practicing Anti-Racism for Personal and Social Transformation

    Our guest presenter is anti-racism educator L. Glenise Pike. She is an author, public educator, and lecturer whose passions live at the intersections of race, identity, leadership, human connection, and storytelling. Her antiracism resources and other academic works are rooted in a desire to provide leaders and organizations with critical tools for sustainable change in the collective effort for racial equality. Her work can be found at We Change. We Inspire., where she facilitates workshops and intensive trainings for passionate individuals looking to lead by example in antiracism. Her upcoming book, Inspire Change By Being, an expanded edition of the previously printed and international selling Becoming Antiracist journal, is scheduled to be released in early Fall 2021.

    Aug 8 – Practicing Anti-Racism as a Church

    On August 8 representatives from St. Andrew’s Christian Church (DOC) will share their work over the last year practicing anti-racism in their church. Like us, they responded to George Floyd’s death with a commitment to anti-racism. This forum will provide the opportunity to learn from and share ideas with another Disciples church.

    Aug 15 – Practicing Anti-Racism in our Wider Community

    Last year, the statement adopted by our board expressed a commitment to “support the efforts of groups seeking to raise the consciousness of our nation, including the Poor People’s Campaign led by Disciples minister  Rev. William Barber. This week we will engage in conversation with Bloomington community organizers with the Poor People’s Campaign as we consider how God might be calling us to support their work.

     As God has welcomed us, we welcome you.

    With all our differences–

    in age, ability and physical condition,

    in race, cultural background and economic status,

    in sexual orientation, gender identity & family structure–

    with loving kindness, patience, and joy.

    All that we are together

    and all that we hope to be

    is made more perfect

    as the richness of varied lives

    meets the mystery of God’s unifying Spirit

    and we become the Body of Christ.
