No Online Religious Education for Children on 25 July 2021 — Next Event TBA

Our Sunday afternoon Zoom religious education class for children will take a break on 25 July 2021.

We had originally planned a collage art activity for this Sunday but we are postponing this until August 2021 due to illness (no COVID — just a minor illness for our guest presenter that we don’t want to spread to our children).

As the COVID-19 Delta variant continues to spread in our community and seems to affect children more seriously, we are trying to be mindful in our planning of outdoor activities (taking into account the Louisiana summertime heat as well).

Watch our website and the All Souls Religious Education Facebook Group for updates on opportunities for our children to get together.

Online Adult Religious Education — 25 July 2021

Please join us on Sunday (25 July 2021) at 9:00 AM for our adult religious education class via Zoom.

We have completed our White Fragility book study group using the book by Robin DiAngelo.

Continuing our focus on living into the Eighth Principle, we will view and discuss two videos from Emmanuel Acho’s video podcast “Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man.”

His book by the same name grew out of this podcast series.

We will begin with a short video where President Barack Obama answers a question asked by Mr. Acho — “How Do We Cure Racism?”:

Then we will ll watch “Race vs. Religion” — a conversation between Emmanuel Acho and Rev. Carl Lentz (a Christian pastor for Hillsong East Coast Church) on how religion works either to fuel or stop racism:

We will all watch and discuss both videos together in class on Sunday but do feel free to watch ahead and make notes on the points that most interest you and that you’d like to discuss in the group.
