We have joined together with Metropolitan Congregations United (MCU), the Presbytery of Giddings-Lovejoy, Pilgrim Congregational Church (UCC), and Westminster Presbyterian Church (PCUSA) to have four SACRED CONVERSATIONS ON RACE.
The opening and closing conversations will be held together with all participating churches on Sunday, September 13 (3 – 6 p.m.) and November 8 (3 – 6 p.m.) at First Presbyterian Church of Ferguson (401 Darst Road, Ferguson63135). The middle two conversations will be hosted at Union Avenue Christian Church on September 20 and October 18 (1 – 3 p.m.). We will offer a $6 lunch following worship on these two Sundays.
We will spend some time in prayer, some time learning, some time speaking and some time listening.
The first three meetings have generated constructive dialogue and well intentioned attempts at understanding privilege and discrimination. We meet for the final time SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 2015, at First Presbyterian Church of Ferguson.
