Featuring Dominique DuBois Gilliard, Director of Racial Righteousness and Reconciliation for the Evangelical Covenant Church.
Tuesday 1 February 19h30 via Zoom and also in-person in the Thurber Room
Ever wonder what it means to have privilege? Feel confused about how to use one's privilege for the betterment rather than the detriment of the body of Christ? Dominique Gilliard has done some groundbreaking work helping churches and other organizations recognize where privilege exists and rather than deny it, work toward using it in a way that honors God. You won't want to miss this compelling and challenging evening as we continue to wrestle with what it means to be a church that cares deeply about being a reconciling community.
This is event is part of the Many Colors, Creeds, Cultures...and Conversations! series.
There will be a meal served at the live gathering. We are asking for a donation of €5 to help cover the costs of the food.
