On June 1st in my Musings I invited you to take part in a collaborative reading of A Song of Faith. As only two people responded I’ve decided to shelve that idea and will instead use the offerings have have been submitted in a different manner. I suspect that folk are maybe somewhat overwhelmed by technology and focusing on being outside these days. Good for you! That is healthy!
When you are indoors though, on Saturday evening, June 14th at 7PM, maybe you’d like to take part in a Black Lives Matter Prayer Vigil: www.youtube.com/unitedchurchofcanada The Black Clergy of The United Church of Canada invites the whole church to join for a time of worship, prayer and reflection in the face of the issues of anti-Black racism in our country and in the church. In worship we will lament, we will hope and we will be reminded of the need to act against racism. Our worship will seek to shine light in and on the darkness of racism.
And for those rainy summer days, consider a Summer Online Book Study – White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard For White People to Talk About Racism. The Seekers Group at Sackville United Church recently engaged with this book by Robin Diangelo. It will help you uncover biases and build stamina for conversations about racism and white privilege. If you are looking for ways to prepare to hold space for challenging conversations and work toward anti-racism and anti-oppression, join this 6-week summer book study. Discussions will be held on Zoom, Thursday mornings at 10 am, July 2nd – August 6th.
