Racial Justice Ministries
A Balm in Gilead
Grief Litanies for the Holidays

A Balm in Gilead is a seed of hope.

Through a series of prayerful moments, faith leaders across the country offer words of encouragement for those struggling during this holiday season. After an unprecedented year, bringing multiple challenges for so many people, people of faith must cling to hope even in the midst of our struggles.

Sometimes, we simply need a reminder that God is present. “A Balm in Gilead” is that reminder.

December Clergywomen Gathering
Table Talk
Race, Family Values, and What We Say in Private

The kitchen table is the most powerful piece of furniture in our homes. At the kitchen table, families engage in conversations about what happened during the day; they laugh and cry and fight at the table. While these conversations are private—and sometimes even secret—they shape how we view the world and the way that we act in the public arena.

Scarritt Bennett Center invites you to a table talk with Gamaliel Network leaders where together we explore the impact—especially at this time in our shared history—of the kitchen table through storytelling and self-examination.

Date and Time: December 6, 2:00 pm CST
Location: Live on Facebook
Cost: Free and open to the public
