IF you want to participate, don’t delay. Email Margaret McHale at firstname.lastname@example.org. "Sacred Ground is a film- and readings- based dialogue series on race, grounded in faith. Small groups are invited to walk through chapters of America’s history of race and racism, while weaving in threads of family story, economic class, and political and regional identity. It is a 10-part series in which participants are invited to peel away the layers that have contributed to the challenges and divides of the present day, while grounded in our call to faith, hope and love.” Here are a few more details: -The program will meet monthly via Zoom, starting September 14 and then on the first Monday of each month from 6:30-8:00 PM -Participants are asked to commit to the entire ten sessions, ending in June -There are two books that form the foundational material, and as well as film clips, films and articles to read in preparation for each meeting -We will order the books for participants.
