Exploring Race and the Church
One important aspect of our life together is the Cathedral's commitment to engaging in a series of conversations about race, racism, and being anti-racist. We are having these hard conversations in the Church, not because we are being blown by partisan hot-button topics, but because the Gospel message reminds us that we are all beloved children of God, created in God’s image.
The Rev. Dr. Jake Andrews, professor at Whitworth and assisting priest at the Cathedral, has helped shape a brief overview of theology and race, as grounding for our conversations. You can access that overview here.
The season of exploring race and the church, which began in July, continues! We are continuing these conversations on a more-or-less biweekly basis for the foreseeable future. We look forward to viewing pertinent material together and hearing from a variety of speakers as we learn and grow together into God’s Beloved Community.
Most of these conversations are taking place on Wednesdays at 7pm, via Zoom or Facebook. Contact the office for more information about the latest offerings and how to connect, 509-838-4277.
