Holding Up Your Corner: Guided Conversations About Race is a unique, conversation-based workshop written by F. Willis Johnson. Our lives change when we sit with one another and converse. When we share our own stories and listen to another.
Gather with other HBUMC members for a series of guided conversations, facilitated by Kathryn Gamble and Audrey Gastmeyer, that will empower you individually and together to act and to embody God's promises of hope and justice in our community.
[Note: This is different from Rev. Johnson's Holding Up Your Corner: Talking about Race in Your Community that we studied in fall pop-up classes. That book, however, is a good complement to the workshop. Feel free to get it and read it, but it's not necessary for this workshop, which will cover similar topics but is more hands on and discussion-based.]
Format: five weeks, Zoom meetings, Wednesday nights from 7-8pm, starting 3/3
What to do next: Sign up below so we can send you the Zoom link. At your earliest convenience, order the participant book ($10 on Amazon). For the first session on 3/3, please read over the Welcome section and do the "Racial Autobiography" reflection on pg. 3-4. We will also email you a "Conversation Covenant" to review. See you on Zoom on 3/3!
We're looking forward to being with you.
Audrey and Kathryn
