Our most recent series started Sunday, June 3, 11:00 AM on Zoom. It is never too late to join in the conversation!
Dialogue for Change is an adult education forum that provides a space for learning about race, racism, and becoming antiracist. There are TedTalk videos, small group discussions, individuals sharing their stories, and special speakers. We encourage everyone to come and bring a friend to the new summer series. The planning committee guarantees dynamic engagement with topics of racial awareness and equity in our community and nation. We must keep learning, remain open to new awareness, and be willing to change what we think and how we act. Wait—isn’t that what Christian discipleship is all about?
On June 3, we began the series with a video of four Black Christians who spoke about their experience in church and community and their reliance on their faith for hope in the future. It was an excellent place to begin our summer discussions.
Below is the first page of the curriculum for Dialogue for Change, a series of virtual classes SRVUMC held via Zoom about racial issues confronting society today. Since the class was a positive experience for our participants, we are sharing the curriculum so that others might use it. All 6 pages are accessible by going to the bottom of the document page where a grey line pops up and then simply click on the arrow. If you have questions, please call the church office at 925-837-5243 or email Patsy Kyles.Dialog-for-Change-Projects_final
