Anti-Racism Workshop

Bishop Elizabeth A Eaton

“As a church called to witness to the Gospel of Jesus Christ, we must continue to listen deeply, to speak out about racial equity and inclusion, to respect and uplift the dignity and humanity of every person and to join with others in organizing for change.  In baptism we have become part of the body of Christ and in Christ there is no barrier between us.” – ELCA Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton, 2014

Advent Lutheran Church in Morgan Hill is hosting an Anti-Racism Workshop on Saturday, Feb 3rd, 9 AM – 4 PM at our church site, 16870 Murphy Ave, Morgan Hill, CA 95037.  It will be a thought-provoking day dedicated to giving participants the vocabulary and tools to together begin dismantling racism in our communities and churches from a Christian theological perspective.  We would love for you to participate with us.  There is no fee to attend and lunch will be provided.  We will gratefully accept a free-will offering of any amount to defray the costs of lunch, the materials and our facilitator;  you may donate via our website or on the day of the event.

The workshop will include using the resource, Cracking the Codes: The System of Racial Inequity, from World Trust.  Our facilitator will be the Rev. Adisa Armand, a pastor within the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. She has worked with many local and national organizations to inaugurate honest conversations about systemic racism within the American context.  This may be accomplished through strategic dialogue, readings, specific movies, personal testimonies from people of colour in small and large groups, that hopefully result in transformative personal and community behavior. 

Please register online or you may also sign up via the sign-up sheet in the gathering area at church.  We will gratefully accept a free-will offering of any amount to defray the costs of lunch, the materials and our facilitator; you may donate via our website or on the day of the event.
