ANNOUNCEMENTS

Race and Social Justice Learning Group 

Over the next five months, Pastor Alan will lead two conversations a month on various race and social justice topics.  Together, we will learn what words like white privilege, structural racism, and nationalism mean through study of scripture, the most recent confession to our denomination: The Confession of Belhar, various articles, guest speakers, and books.  The goal of this group is to increase our understanding of these topics, work to address prejudices in our congregation, aim to change our community, and write a statement on how the First Presbyterian Church of Everett will commit to be a better community, for all people.  This statement will demonstrate our collective action to see everyone as human and part of the family of God.  


We will aim to gather on the 2nd Wednesday and 4th Tuesday through June.  Extra dates for the weekend or other agreed upon meeting times will be announced.  This class will strive to be a safe place for everyone to come to learn, share, and express themselves while we wrestle with difficult topics. Participants will be expected to agree to ground rules of respect and love before each meeting. 


The Presbyterian Church (USA) reminds us: “Racism is the opposite of what God intends for humanity. It is the rejection of the other, which is entirely contrary to the Word of God incarnate in Jesus Christ. Racism is a lie about our fellow human beings, for it says that some are less than others. Because of our biblical understanding of who God is and what God intends for humanity, the PC(USA) must stand against, speak against and work against racism.”  http://facing-racism.pcusa.org/ The First Presbyterian Church of Everett believes we can do better in our practice and intention to be an inclusive, diverse, and welcoming body of Christ. 


If you have any questions, then please ask Pastor Alan.  Additional information will be forthcoming.
