A Summer Discussion Group has Begun and All are Welcome!

Wednesdays, 6:00 p.m., at the parsonage

The “Love Your Neighbour” discussion group invites you! The group who read James Cones’ The Cross and the Lynching Tree with Pastor Larson wants to continue discussion about racism in American society. All are welcome. The group is committed to caring, honest, and safe conversation on issues of race, seeking how more faithfully we as Christian individuals and as church can bring our part to God’s intended rule of reconciling love to neighbor and world. The book basis for our conversations over the summer is Michael Eric Dyson’s, Tears We Cannot Stop, A Sermon to White America. It is available on Amazon in softback and Kindle format. All is casual; snacks and beverages to share are welcomed.
