Event:**ZOOM** RACIAL HEALING: BEING A LIGHT OF GOD’S LOVE
Date:October 16th-18th, 2020.

Begins Friday, Oct 16, at 7 pm, and ends Sunday, Oct 18, at 12 noon

 

During this weekend online retreat, we will look back at our journey as European-Americans and African-Americans, consider current events and explore ways that each of us can be a light of God’s love, bringing about racial healing in the United States.

We will use a combination of:

  • Bible passages
  • Artwork
  • Music
  • Testimonies
  • Historical accounts
  • Prayers
  • Reflection questions
  • Small-group discussions

While the complexity of racism and racial injustice can seem overwhelming, Andrea will lead us in realistic but hope-filled sessions, helping us to appreciate how much change has taken place, and giving us tangible ways to continue to make a difference. Throughout the retreat, we will offer prayers of gratitude and call upon God to cleanse us, heal us, guide us and unify us, the US of A. 

This gathering will take place in 6 one-hour-long Zoom sessions with time for individual prayer and opportunities to share in small groups.

Please note: registrations received after 12noon on Friday, 10/16 may not be processed in time to attend this Zoom retreat.

Do What I Can
If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain: If I can ease one life the aching, Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin Unto his nest again, I shall not live in vain.
— Emily Dickinson
