The Gospel, Justice & Peace
Beginning July 5, 2020
Furman and Marie are developing a plan for an adult Sunday School class, beginning next Sunday, July 5th about Gospel Justice & Peace with reflections on contemporary questions about racial and other inequities and injustices. Marie and Furman are currently reading “How to be an Antiracist” by Ibram X. Kendi, and will share some insights from this text. Also recommended is the first episode from the podcast, “The 1619 Project” about the origins and residue of racially-based slavery in America. You may join the class whether or not you choose to read or watch/listen to any of the materials beforehand. Here is the link to join: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/84871304409 Meeting ID# is 848 7130 4409.

The children can join their friends at 11:30 a.m. each Sunday via a Zoom meeting for the readings and stories just as they have enjoyed in past summers. However, we need your help to make this happen!
Please pick a Sunday (or two) to volunteer to lead and sign up – https://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080E44ADAD2AA2FE3-2020
