Will you consider joining a Salt and Light small group? First Presbyterian Church is committed to participating in the work of anti-racism. One way we do this is to learn more about our own racial identity and, as a predominantly white faith community, we are beginning this work by reading the book Waking Up White by Debby Irving. This book will be used to prompt discussion about racial identity in the context of small groups. In small groups, space will be provided for deeper reflection and relationship building among our church community. You can still sign up for a small group at https://bit.ly/2xhbuX2. The last day to register will be Friday, Sept. 13.
At present, we have over 60 people signed up – and we have room for more! For those of you who have signed up, your small group facilitators will be contacting you during the week of Sept 16. Each group will identify the best time to meet and the location.
All are welcome and wanted to participate – young and old, new to New Haven or long-time members, white people and people of color. Each of us bears a unique image of God and we pray God’s wisdom, mercy, and love will be made known as we listen to and learn from each other.
