The synod’s Just Love Team invites you to join an end of summer six-week book discussion on BLACK FATIGUE: How Racism Erodes the Mind, Body, and Spirit by Mary-Frances Winters. Winters has a distinguished history of helping organizations of all kinds address diversity, equity, and inclusion. Black fatigue is about how history, policy, practices, and unaddressed disparities generate cycles of weariness and stress that take a heavy toll on people. Our book discussion will deepen our understanding of the suffering racism causes and our call in the Gospel to experience wholeness.
The online sessions will run from August 4 through September 8 on Wednesday evenings from 7 pm – 8:30 pm EDT via Zoom. A special Facebook group will also be created on the synod page for ongoing discussion. The Zoom format will include a brief presentation on the weekly reading, breakout groups in chat rooms, and a plenary sharing session.
Registration is required by August 3.
You can find the book on Amazon and through other booksellers.
