Healing Racism Training, St Jude’s, Cupertino

Friday, August 17, 2018 (All day) to Saturday, August 18, 2018 (All day)

Talking about race in our culture, in our Church, in America, is one of the most difficult (and feared) conversations in our times and necessary to heal our world. Presiding Bishop Michael Curry said: "[The] Episcopal Church made a commitment to what I call the Jesus Movement and a commitment to following in the way of Jesus of Nazareth... which is the way of God’s love in this world. And doing it by a way of evangelism and a way that leads to racial reconciliation in our society and in our world." To create the skills for evangelism and conversation on race the Diocese of California offers Healing Racism Training. This course is open to all and successful completion fulfill the anti-racism requirements for lay leaders and postulants to Holy Orders. Instructors are the Rev. Jay Watan and the Rev. Eric Metoyer.
