Race Relations Opportunities

During Lent, the Race Task Force is sharing several ways to deepen our awareness of racial equity issues with:


  • A study of "Jesus and the Disinherited" by African-American minister, theologian, and civil rights leader Howard Thurman. In this book, Dr. Thurman interprets the teachings of Jesus through the experiences of the oppressed. Friends at Crown in Glory Lutheran and Trinity Presbyterian Churches are invited to read this book with us. Rev. Barrie Kirby and Monica Greene will lead discussions on Zoom at times to be determined. For more information on Howard Thurman, watch MPT Presents | Backs Against the Wall: The Howard Thurman Story | PBS. If you wish to participate, contact Barrie at bkirby17@carolina.rr.com or 704-798-1920. A study of "Waking Up White and Finding Myself in the Story of Race," by Debby Irving. The author explores her racial identity and shares how she began to question her assumptions about race and culture. This discussion group, led by Elizabeth Cook, will meet via Zoom on five Sundays at 7:00 pm, February 21-March 21. Sign up by contacting Elizabeth at egravescook@yahoo.com or 704-239-0011.
