Led by Pastor Dan Milford & Father Cleophas Kukeya
Mondays, October 12th – November 30th –  from 6:30pm – 8:00pm

This fall, Pastor Dan Milford and Father Cleophas Kukeya will be facilitating conversations on racism and the mission of the church.

Here’s a brief description of the class:  We know that the history of our country includes the genocide of Native Americans, enslavement of people from Africa and their descendants, internment of Japanese Americans during WWII, and many other things rooted in racism. But those things happened a long time ago. How does racism influence how I think, how I respond to others, how we as churches carry out our ministries and our life in community? What might we need to notice in ourselves and our congregations? How might we need to change in order to more fully live as God’s people at this time and in this place? With America walking through a time of racial reckoning in 2020, this class invites members of Covenant, Epiphany, and the general public to join for crucial conversations in which we seek to grow in our understanding of racism, its impact on our lives, and how we as individuals and the Church are called to respond to it.
