Courageous Conversations #2

Wednesday, November 1, 2017 -
6:30pm to 9:00pm
The New Jim Crow Book Group

You are invited to join parishioners from two other congregations (Christ Church and Epiphany Orange and St. George's Maplewood) in sharing two Courageous Conversations on Wednesday, October 4 and Wednesday, November 1 from 7:30pm to 9pm.  Courageous Conversation will be something of a follow-up to the discussions some of us participated in last year when we read Michelle Alexander’s The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness.

Courage is a matter of the heart (denoting the heart, as the seat of feelings: from Old French corage, from Latin cor ‘heart’).  To engage in conversation should be a matter of our heart, for conversation at its best is an expression of our most heart-felt feelings.  This invitation is to participate in Courageous Conversation with fellow believers on two subjects that challenger our society today: the reality of mass incarceration, and race and ethnicity.
