Pastor Book Study: I'm Black. I'm Christian. I'm Methodist
Time & Location
About the Event
Pastor Sandy will lead another book study as part of our year long commitment to education on becoming anti-racist. The study begins June 18 on Fridays at noon. We will meet in person and also zoom so everyone can participate.
Book Description: In I'm Black. I'm Christian. I'm Methodist, edited by Rudy Rasmus, ten Black women and men explore life through the lens of compelling personal religious narratives. They are people and leaders whose lives are tangible demonstrations of the power of a divine purpose and evidence of what grace really means in face of hardship, disappointment, and determination. Features the writing of Tori C. Butler, Rodney L. Graves, Lillian C. Smith, Erin Beasley, Justin Coleman, Jevon A. Caldwell-Gross, Pamela R. Lightsey, F. Willis Johnson, Vance P. Ross, and Rudy Rasmus. Each of the journeys intersect because of three central elements that are the focus of this book. We're Black. We're Christians. We're Methodists. Each starts with the fact, "I'm Black," but to resolve the conflict of being Christian and Methodist means confronting aspects of White theology, White supremacy, and White racism in order to ground an oppositional experience toward domination over four centuries in America.
