The members of three Wilmington Churches continue their collaboration on issues of racial justice on Sunday, March 7, at 3:00 p.m. Please join the conversation!
FATHER DAVID’S BLOG OF 2021-02-26 – I look forward to Sunday, February 28, and our second 25th Anniversary event at 3:00 in the afternoon. This promises to be a powerful presentation as we hear the stories of the coming together of SsAM. What a fitting way to conclude Black History Month!
Two months ago, we completed a six-week course entitled “Racism in America” led by Sue Linderman of Westminster Presbyterian Church in Wilmington. Below is a message from Sue about steps moving forward from our six weeks together.
I will host an organizational meeting for those interested in being a part of this small collaborative group. If you are interested, please contact me by Wednesday, March 3, and I will send the Zoom meeting link to you. If you cannot make the meeting on the 7th, please indicate that and I will make sure that you will be in a group moving forward.
Fr. David+, OA
From Sue Linderman:
At the conclusion of our “Racism in America – The History We Didn’t Learn in School” classes in January, we agreed to take some time to reflect on our experiences and develop our thoughts about moving forward.
We knew that First & Central Presbyterian Church would be concluding its series of classes in February and that there might be an opportunity for our congregations to work together on next steps.
First & Central has now finished the class series and its participants have expressed great interest in forming small groups with us for continuing discussion and involvement in racial justice initiatives.
As Father David said above, we propose holding a joint Zoom gathering on Sunday, March 7, at 3:00 p.m. for everyone from SsAM, Westminster, and First & Central interested in exploring next steps together.
We will gather the email addresses of everyone who wants to participate and send out a Zoom link for your use that day.
Our hope is that, as these groups begin to meet and trust one another, together we will live into being the Beloved Community. There will be other activities I hope members of SsAM join in the coming few months.
