Presbytery-wide Reading of “Waking Up White”

“Racism is the opposite of what God intends for humanity.” (PC(USA).  As a Presbytery, we are committed to examining ourselves, and our practices, on the issue of racism.  We will begin this work with a Presbytery wide reading of Deb Irving’s “Waking Up White”. 

At the May 21 Presbytery meeting, we will spend the educational hour in small discussion groups, talking about this book, our experiences with racism, and where we find ourselves as faith communities on this issue.  We strongly encourage your Sessions, congregations, Bible Studies and Sunday School classes to join in this effort.  The PC(USA) has developed a study guide for readers- please feel free to use that.  It will guide our discussion in May.
