Beloved Stories, Beloved CommunitySunday Oct. 21, 2018 @ 10:30am
Our stories are sacred – full of wisdom, grace, and courage, and also with pain, mistakes, and regret. How might we treat our stories – both personal and congregational – as beloved teachers that inform our way forward? Let us bring a compassionate and vulnerable look at our stories and experiences of race and see what they have to teach us about building beloved community. Our Good Neighbor Offering will go to local Puerto Rican organizing, and we’ll share about the Beloved Conversations class coming up in January.
Stay for lunch and our Skills and Thrills Auction at noon!
