Anti-Racism Training event on Thursday, February 13, 2010 hosted by Faith Lutheran Church in Little Rock from 9:30 – 3.
We gather at 9:30, the first session begins a little before 10:00 am. NOTE: Originally we asked you to save the dates of January 28 & 29, the February 13 event replaces those dates - thank you for your flexibility!!
This is our second Anti-Racism Training as a ministerium (deacons, pastors, synodically authorized ministers, and youth and family ministers). Like the boundary workshop that happens every three years, this anti-racism training is an important part of our commitment to serve with care as leaders in our congregations and ministries and it a good opportunity to be together as a ministerium. Our hope is to come together at least every three years to talk about race and racism as the church and its leaders.
This year we will spend the morning learning about the unique history of race in Arkansas and how that history informs realities of race and racism in Arkansas today (a similar program is being put together for Oklahoma – date TBA). In the afternoon we will examine our own history of race and racism and how that informs our leadership and perspectives today.
Please RSVP soon with any food restrictions for our hosts (thank you Shannon & Josh!!). More detailed information about the training will come out closer to the date.
Financial assistance with housing may be available by request for those traveling the day before – just let me know!
