As we approach the season of Lent, we have the opportunity to examine ourselves and take inventory of areas in our life that need thoughtful repentance.
We’ve decided to spend time corporately looking at how our cultural and social shaping in the United States has colored the way we view race, religion, the police, education, economics, housing, and more.
We’ll be using a study written by theologians (and friends) Sangwon Yang and Mako Nagasawa called A Long Repentance: Christian mistakes about Race, Politics, and Justice in the United States to open up a conversation in our congregation about ways we need to repent together this season.
Our class will be discussion based, so there will be room for disagreement, questions, and exploration of ideas that may be new to many of us. Our hope is that because of our time together, we will be able to move into dialogue, repentance, and ultimately into new ways of inhabiting our community full of the vibrant life of Jesus.
The class will take place online via video call, and will begin Tuesday February 5 at 8pm.
