Author Talk: “Pauli Murray: Shouting for the Rights of All People”

Deborah Nelson Linck has written a book about this Episcopal priest and civil rights icon for all people; however, it is geared to the younger generations who might not have heard about her and they learn about Black history. So, “come” and bring a young person. It is truly important as we face constant attacks on gender non-conforming and trans young people. They will find a sheroe in this story of Pauli Murray.

Book Talk: Black and Episcopalian – The Struggle for Inclusion

Book Talk: Black and Episcopalian – The Struggle for Inclusion

Join the Crummell-Cooper Chapter UBE and author/priest Gayle Fisher-Stewart for this event. Inclusion is more than the fight for acceptance. Is it possible to bring one’s whole, authentic self to the church? How can we ensure that those who enter see themselves in the liturgy, iconography, music and formation processes or is there an “Episcopal bootcamp” where one is stripped of beliefs, traditions, culture to become Episcopalian? What is the “Black Church” in a white denomination and why is the Episcopal Church still so white? The moderator for this event is Dr. William Byrd, St. George’s Episcopal Church.

Tell Me The Truth about Racism

Tell Me The Truth about Racism

Tell Me the Truth About Racism is a story that frames racism through the lens of Christian faith for children aged 5-12. Leaders Will Bouvel and Jen Holt Enriquez, first built the foundation of this work in Lent 2021 to teach to children at churches in the Episcopal Diocese of Chicago. Soon thereafter they began training other Christian formation leaders to do this work in their own churches.

Tell Me the Truth About Racism is respected throughout the church and received a Becoming the Beloved Community grant from the Episcopal Church. The entire training is 7 sessions. This 2-hour workshop, sponsored by the Episcopal Diocese of Washington is an opportunity to learn more about the training and to discern if it is a good fit for your community.

The workshop takes place at Diocesan Church House on Tuesday, January 17, 2023 from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM. Lunch will be provided. The event is free and open to all. Registration is required. You can register on the learning hub here or at learn.edow.org.
