Cascadia District Superintendent Wendy Woodworth is inviting you to join her and others in the Cascadia District to begin learning and growing together about racism and white privilege.  If you do not have an opportunity to study in your local church, this is for you … if you want to have a discussion with others before you lead one yourself in your ministry setting, this is for you … if you simply want to have an additional opportunity for discussion, this is for you.

This summer we'll have two discussions via Zoom. (Link will be provided later). For each you can choose either the 9 a.m. time or the 7 p.m. time.

On July 14, we'll be discussing Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption by Bryan Stevenson and film by Warner Brothers.  
  •  Read the book or watch the film
  • Come prepared to discuss these questions:
    • What impacted you the most about this story?
    • Where did you see sin - racism - injustice?
    • Where did you see grace - justice - redemption?
    • What emotions did you experience?
    • What does this film call you to do?
On August 4, we'll be discussing White Fragility by Robin DiAngelo.
  • Read the book
  • Come prepared to discuss:
    • a one minute statement of how you have benefited from white privilege or been impacted as a person of color by the white privilege you have witnessed others receiving.
    • What challenged you in this book . . . what did you learn . . . what were you not ready to hear?
    • What will you take away from this reading?
    • What does this book call you to do?
