Facing Racism: A Vision of the Beloved Community

During Lent, we will continue our series of conversations on white privilege and racism by exploring the PCUSA’s response to racism. We will be joining with folks from Palisades Presbyterian, alternating  locations, in weekly Wednesday evening discussions.

The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) recognizes that the task of dismantling racism is a long-term struggle that requires discernment, prayer, and worship based action. As we move into the next millennium, congregations, presbyteries, and synods are engaging the problem of racism in unprecedented numbers. This is a significant development in the struggle for “racial” justice. In order to respond to this challenge, the 211th General Assembly (1999) approved a comprehensive policy document that will guide the church’s ministry of “racial” justice in the next century,Facing Racism: A Vision of the Beloved Community. We will be using this Biblical-based study guide  Facing Racism: A Vision of the Intercultural Community.
