Holy Listening Begins this Sunday at 4 PM
All parishioners are encouraged to participate in a necessary and vulnerable conversation: Why is it so difficult to talk about race? Where do you find yourself in this conversation around race and justice? What does it mean to listen fully, without agenda? What does it mean to be so present for the truth of another that we lay down the need to react, correct, or respond? How can the act of listening—to God and to one another—be holy?
For this first discussion, participants are asked to view this five minute video reflection from Bryan Stevenson, who is a lawyer, founder of the Equal Justice Initiative, and author of Just Mercy prior to attending the discussion on Zoom. We will spend time engaging where the shared truth landed in your heart—not what you learned, but how it felt to be open to the truth of another. Each conversation will be grounded in scripture and Christian theology.
Sundays in August (9, 16, 23, 30) at 4PM on Zoom.
