Race: The Power of an Illusion

November 5, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Free

A Healing-Racism Initiative of Westminster Presbyterian Church

Sundays, 10/29, 11/5 & 11/12, 1:00-3:00 p.m.

Pat Deeney and Jim Weber, Westminster Presbyterian Church, leaders

Is your heart calling you to:

  • Explore the concept of biological race?
  • Uncover the roots of the race concept?
  • Understand how institutions shape and create race?
  • Ground your conversation in scripture and the Confession of Belhar?

This three-week gathering will explore the material from the PBS series “Race: the power of an illusion”. Each week will begin with a reading from scripture and the Confession of Belhar before the episode is viewed.  Conversations will utilize the PBS study guide for each episode. Participants are asked to maintain confidentiality and to be a nonjudgmental, compassionate, listening presence for others.

Free, bring your own lunch

Westminster Presbyterian Church, 1140 Greenwood Ave., Trenton, NJ 08609

For additional information or to RSVP, contact Pat Deeny (pjdeeney@hotmail.com) or Pastor Karen Hernandez-Granzen (609-462-3063)
