Looking Inward, Moving Forward: An Anti-Racism Journey
This study begins with the question, “How is my racial identity shaped and reshaped by the history I have learned and the circumstances I have encountered in my life?” From there it moves into conversation with our racial identity, and finally, how we are called to act as Christians shaped by repentance and the freedom to love our neighbors as ourselves. What does that look like at Idlewild?
Beginning August 10, to provide a sacred space for our congregation, the sanctuary is open on a limited schedule. Register for a 30 minute session in the sanctuary. COVID protocol must be followed. Contact Marsha Enlow with questions.
