Me and White Supremacy Study @ Grace Covenant

Grace Covenant invites you to join in a 2020 study of
Layla Saad’s, Me and White Supremacy.

This 28-day study supports a deep and honest examination into the ways in which we, as a white-dominant congregation, consciously and unconsciously uphold white supremacy through action and inaction.

Read this letter from the Session inviting us into this spiritual practice.

Who can participate? This study is open to all, and you do not have to be a member of Grace Covenant church in order to join a Reflection Group. This study is intended for adult study.

How will Reflection Groups be structured? Reflection Groups will meet over zoom for 1 ½ hours weekly for eight weeks. Groups will gather using The Circle Way format. You can learn more about The Circle Way here: One member in each group will serve in an initial convening role – sending out the Zoom link information and hosting the first meeting together. Then, roles will rotate between group members as described in The Circle Way. 

Do I have to attend all sessions during the eight weeks? The hope and expectation is that you will be able to join for all eight weeks. Luckily zoom provides a format where you can still participate if you are traveling! We understand that life can happen, but the commitment to your reflection group is that you will participate for all eight weeks to the best of your ability. 

Is Me and White Supremacy a faith-based curriculum? Me and White Supremacy is not a faith-based curriculum. We are prayerful that, by participating as a faith community together, we will strengthen one another’s support and sustainability in dismantling the ways that white supremacy culture is present in ourselves and in our church community.

What happens after I sign up? You will hear from Anna Louise or Kate Shem regarding your registration.
