Sacred Ground

January 18, 7:00 pm - May 17  |  Zoom

This is a 10 session class using materials developed by the Episcopal Church on race, grounded in faith. Our group will walk through chapters of America’s history of race and racism, while weaving in threads of family story, economic class, and political and regional identity.

Facilitated by Renee Wendel and Heidi Forgione, the class will meet every other Monday evening beginning on January 18, from 7:00-8:15 pm on Zoom. The purpose of meeting every other week is to allow participants time to read, watch, and digest the materials we will discuss in our meetings. Sacred Ground is part of Becoming Beloved Community, The Episcopal Church’s long-term commitment to racial healing, reconciliation, and justice in our personal lives, our ministries, and our society. This series is open to all, and especially designed to help white people learn how to talk about their own work of identifying and undoing racism. Participants are invited to peel away the layers that have contributed to the challenges and divides of the present day – all while grounded in our call to faith, hope and love.
We feel that everyone can find something of value in this class and hope that you will join us on this journey. If you would like to join the group but are not familiar with Zoom, we will provide training to help you feel more comfortable with it.
