A new book study, led by Pastor Dan, will start on Sunday, September 13. Pre-Post Racial America, by Sandhya Rani Jha. From the book cover:
It’s hard to talk about race in America without everyone very quickly becoming defensive and shutting down. What makes it even harder is that so few of us actually know each other in the fullness of our stories. Sandhya Rani Jha recasts the difficult conversations about race and faith in a way that is grounded in real people’s stories.
About the author: Sandhya Rani Jha is director of the Oakland Peace Center, anti-racism/anti-oppression trainer with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), director of interfaith programs for Easy Bay Housing Organizations, and a public speaker and preacher. She is the author of Room At The Table: Struggle for Unity and Equality in Disciples History, and coauthor of And Still We Rise.
For those who can not make it on Sunday mornings, we will have a monthly gathering to discuss the book as we journey on this conversation. Cost for the book is $14.00 – please see Pastor Dan to get your copy as we begin this important conversation.
