Too often, the Church in America has been the Church of America solely preach the propaganda that America is the land of the free and the home of the brave and denying its prophetic call to call out injustice and equip its members with holy tools to dismantle systems of oppression. Let’s change that together.
Scarritt Bennett Center’s Racial Justice Ministries is inviting clergywomen of all races in the Nashville area who are committed to racial reconciliation to participate in a study of Dr. Chanequa Walker-Barnes’ book I Bring the Voices of My People: A Womanist Vision for Racial Reconciliation. The study will create brave space for clergywomen to explore, ask questions, share thoughts, and live out racial reconciliation in preparation to bring it back to our ministry locations. The study begins August 18th and will meet weekly at 6pm through September 15th culminating with a dinner reception with and lecture from the author.
