As our part of the Minnesota Annual Conference's commitment to racial justice
, we have been embarking on a process for clergy to receive a baseline training that gives us common language and practices for anti-racism. This baseline training will focus on developing a shared language to talk about racism. We will also work to build a community of support and accountability so clergy can honestly examine their own socialization regarding racism. Anti-racism, like any other spiritual discipline, requires intentional focus and regular practice. Clergy will meet online four times over eight weeks, with a small group check-in and reflective practice between sessions.
The group that is currently forming will meet at either 10 a.m.-noon or 1-3 p.m., depending on the preference of the participants, and on the following Thursdays: July 15, July 29, August 12, August 26. This program will be offered several more times this year and next. All clergy are encouraged to take part.
