Dear People of Faith... Now What?

  • Trinity PC 1615 6th Avenue Tacoma, WA, 98405 United States (map)

The pictures coming out of Ferguson, Missouri in August 2014 were eerily similar to iconic images seared into our collective, national memory from the 1950s and 1960s. What does that similarity have to show us? What should the #blacklivesmatter movement mean for Christians?

It is easy to feel overwhelmed in the face of systemic, persistent racism, and yet the Christian message still calls us to seek justice. How can we respond to racism in our daily lives as Christians?

Professor and author Dr. Jen Harvey will be leading a workshop on the topic as we seek to learn from this moment of conflict in our society and light the fires of our moral imagination so we can meaningfully engage the urgent question: where do we go from here?

Trinity is honored to be co-sponsoring this event with Bethany Presbyterian and First United Methodist.  All are welcome to take part in the workshop, no matter your faith or lack of it.
