Sacred Ground Series
An Invitation to Join the Sacred Ground Series – An Episcopal Church Series on Faith & Race
(scroll down for participant resources)
We are excited to be offering the Episcopal Church’s course Sacred Ground at St. Paul’s. 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.
The 10-part series is built around a powerful online curriculum of documentary films and readings that focus on Indigenous, Black, Latino, and Asian/Pacific American histories as they intersect with European American histories.
Sacred Ground is part of Becoming Beloved Community, The Episcopal Church’s long-term commitment to racial healing, reconciliation, and justice in our personal lives, our ministries, and our society. Participants are invited to peel away the layers that have contributed to the challenges and divides of the present day – all while grounded in our call to faith, hope and love.
This small group series runs weekly from January through mid-March. We will be offering four different sessions to choose from. All gatherings will take place on Zoom and will last for 90-minutes.
Participants can find resources – including group norms and the syllabus below. E-mail Lynn Williams for more information or with questions.
