In July 2022 Risen Savior polled our parishioners to ask which justice issue they would like to learn more about in a JustFaith group. The topic with the most interest is “Faith and Racial Equity: Exploring Power and Privilege.” We are excited to offer this small group starting the week of Sept. 12th!
What is JustFaith? JustFaith programs are 8-10 week small-group experiences where participants commit to learning, praying, and reflecting together about a justice issue facing us today.
Why Faith and Racial Equity? This is a 10-week small group with an opening retreat, 8 group sessions, and an immersion experience. Program goals include
- Develop awareness of the ways that racial privilege impacts our communities and ourselves
- Through a deep dive into the Gospel of Luke, learn how Jesus’s teachings guide us in seeking racial justice in today’s world.
- Learn practical tools for becoming anti-racist, and for effecting change in our communities.
This program awakens participants to the economic systems, public policies, cultural norms, and hidden biases that empower some and oppress others.
When: We are offering 2 group times: Mondays in person at Risen Savior from 10am-12pm and Wednesday evenings virtually from 7-9pm. Groups meet weekly starting the week of Sept. 12th through the week of Nov. 14th. (Please note: we changed the in-person group to meet on Mondays instead of Tuesdays to accommodate more schedules.)
Cost: The program registration is $50 which includes a copy of each of the 3 books needed and the program’s supplemental materials from JustFaith. Participants receive online and hard copy access.
