From the Book of Discipline:
¶ 5. Article V. Racial Justice—The United Methodist Church proclaims the value of each person as a unique child of God and commits itself to the healing and wholeness of all persons. The United Methodist Church recognizes that the sin of racism has been destructive to its unity throughout its history. Racism continues to cause painful division and marginalization. The United Methodist Church shall confront and seek to eliminate racism, whether in organizations or in individuals, in every facet of its life and in society at large. The United Methodist Church shall work collaboratively with others to address concerns that threaten the cause of racial justice at all times and in all places.
Our group is continuing to find ways to dismantle racism. We would like to invite anyone who is interested, to join us as we march forward. We meet monthly to review books, articles, movies, videos, etc. that will provide us with further learning and ideas to share with you, our congregation and our community.
The Dismantling Racism Group will sponsor a “Food and Film Night” on Sunday, February 27th at 5:00 pm. It will be the first in a series and the film that evening will be “Hidden Figures”. A time for discussion will follow the showing. A link to the event can be found HERE
Mark your calendars now and watch for details!
