As the Mountain Sky Conference, we are committed to doing anti-racism work within ourselves, our churches, and our world. This is round two of the book study and it will offer space for clergy who are interested in the possibility of bringing this book into their church and/or community. The following book study will be offered as space for clergy to learn, explore, reflect on the process of white socialization, realities of racism within our society, and how we can facilitate these conversations as community leaders.

This 6-week book study, starting on Wednesday, July 22 at 9:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m., will include a short reading and a question for reflection each day. It will frame anti-racism work as a spiritual practice in order to emphasize that anti-racism work is never finished, but rather is a life long commitment to living more fully into the body of Christ and the image of God.

This group will be limited to 8-10 clergy, so please sign up as soon as possible by emailing Betty at bnguyen@mtnskyumc.org. Revs. AJ Bush and Bich Thy (Betty) Nguyen will be facilitating this book study. 

More about Waking Up White 
“Waking Up White," is a wake-up call for white people who want to consciously contribute to racial justice rather than unconsciously perpetuate patterns of racism. With honesty and humility, Debby Irving shares her own story of transformation—a journey of opening herself to learning about the realities of racism and the unintended impacts of white privilege. By confronting her own fears and mistakes, she gleans many useful lessons and tips that can help move others from confusion and avoidance to constructive engagement, authentic connection, and courageous action.” – Terry Keleher, Thought Leadership and Practice Specialist,  Race Forward
