From our Colonial beginnings, issues of race and racism have been woven into our Congregational life in one way or another simply because we are in Philadelphia. Sometimes, events close to the congregation have required us to recognize a situation involving race, and make a prayerful decision on how to live out our faith.
Join us after worship, in the Social Hall on March 18. Bring a brown bag lunch if you like. Each session will last about 90 minutes and end by 2:30 pm.
In our last session Nancy Donohue presented her historical discoveries in our archives. We learned that good people can behave badly, and we looked back in shock at these events in our history. In this session, Michael Johnson and Jackie Williams will help us take a more personal view of this history as we examine how it continues to affect us.
It is not necessary to have attended Part 1 of this conversation to attend on March 18. In fact, we hope more members will be inspired to join the conversation.
