St Andrew’s Anti-Racist Reading Group has started its work! Our goal will be to understand the roots and effects of systemic and personal racism. In this way, we will consciously participate in the Spirit’s work of cleansing this divisive and anti-Christian sin from our souls, our life in community, and the Body of Christ.
We will begin with Dr. Ibram X Kendi’s award-winning and foundational Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America (2016 ‘Best Book of the Year’ WaPo and Boston Globe; 2016 National Book Award for Nonfiction; National Book Critics Circle Finalist for Nonfiction; NAACP Image Award Finalist, Nonfiction). You can order it through this link. Main facilitators for the group are Reberta Skinner and Peach McDouall.
To be added to the forum listserv and receive more detailed information about readings and discussion questions, please send your name, phone #, and email address to Peach McDouall at this link.
