Book Study Opportunity
Why It's so Hard for White People to Talk About Race"
Join Reverend Bill Smith in Discussion:
Race relations have been a source of conflict throughout our country's history. Today the issues dominate the news, challenging each one of us. Will this be a time justice is served and we move forward in a more positive way?
As a starting point I would like to offer a book discussion of
Robin DiAngelo's "White Fragility: Why It's so Hard for White People to Talk About Race".
The book is currently being used in many churches to help people see more clearly the role they may play in relating to today's race relations.
If you would like to participate in these discussions, call
Bill Smith at 206-554-1545 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I'm hoping we can meet as groups of ten. We will meet following appropriate health guidance as set by Greater Northwest Area of UMC. This may mean meeting outdoors on the church grounds or inside the building using appropriate Covid 19 protocols - masks, chairs six feet apart, hand sanitizers, etc. Also, zoom meetings are a potential way to join the study.
