Please join us on Sunday (21 March 2021) at 9:00 AM for our adult religious education class via Zoom.
What Now? Living the 8th Principle: Revisiting Covenant with Susan Caldwell and Barbara Deger.
In December 2020, we celebrated our congregational ratification of the Eighth Principle. We noted at the time that the language of this principle holds us accountable to the work of dismantling systemic racism and white supremacy culture.
This Sunday, we will take a look at our congregational covenant of right relations.
In many ways, it’s an excellent covenant created through a thoughtful and thorough process facilitated by thoughtful and thorough people.
We have no need to scrap it — but as always — we don’t know what we don’t know.
Our goal here is to look at our covenant through an anti-racist lens, and see where our language may have unintentionally upheld white supremacy culture.
This is how we “honor the intent, own the impact.”
Susan Caldwell will be ordering books for the class for all who request them and is happy to include you in the order whether you attend the class or do not attend (of course we’d love for you to attend the class).
