Pastor Andy will lead a four-part class that will examine what it means for the Church to be active participants in the work of dismantling white supremacy. Lenny Duncan’s book, Dear Church: A Love Letter from a Black Preacher to the Whitest Denomination in the U.S., will be the focus text. (The Vermont Book Shop has ordered 10 copies of this book for us. The books should arrive early next week. You can purchase your copy there or place an online order elsewhere.)
Duncan’s book is a powerful example of “speaking truth in love.” Nadia Bolz-Weber’s review is telling. She writes, “I dare you to be open to the repentance that this book calls for, to the grace it manifests, to the pain it witnesses to. I dare you to be changed by the truth in its pages. I dare you to not look away. It’s time."
The four sessions will take place on Tuesdays in February from 7:30 to 8:30ish. Zoom link here.
All are welcome.
