You have probably had the experience of taking an old idea, perspective, or behavior and through examination, information, discussion, or practice changed it. It is possible, when needed, for new ways of thinking and acting to replace the old ways, and we can become more like who we were created by God to be—a beloved community.
This endeavor is exactly what the Presbyterian Mission Agency’s Racial, Ethnic and Women’s Ministries worked toward when it designed a curriculum to help fulfill PCUSA’s covenant to “embrace racial and cultural diversity as God-given assets of the human family and become an antiracism community, resisting oppression and working to overcome racism within its own life and the life of the society.”
 
This fall, on five consecutive Monday evenings, WCPC will offer “Unity in Diversity: Conversations about Racism” to our congregation and all visitors in our community. These sessions will provide an opportunity to
1. See how the Bible teaches us to embrace diversity and promote justice
2. Look at some of the history of our denomination’s dealing with this issue
3. Discuss the historical and ongoing negative legacy of racism in this country
4. Consider how our faith community can work towards reconciliation.
The sessions will include presentations and small- and large-group discussions.
We will meet in CHEB 301 from 7:00-8:00 p.m. on Sept. 11, 18, and 25 and Oct. 2 and 9. Everyone is welcome to come learn, discuss, and share light refreshments. Childcare will be provided for the first session, and by reservation for the following ones. If you have questions, please contact Nancy Hathaway at 281-367-8792.
We look forward to seeing you at these sessions as WCPC strives to live into its call to be “An Inclusive Church Family: Loving, Sharing, and Serving Christ.”
