Pathway to Reconciliation Facilitator Training September 14, 2019
July 17, 2019
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 14 AT ST. MATTHEW'S, EVANSTON
Sponsored by the Episcopal Diocese of Chicago’s Antiracism Commission
Learn how to guide your church in using "Pathway to Reconciliation," the Congregational Study Guide for the Legacy of Slavery Task Force Report.
Bishop Lee has emphatically charged each congregation to spend the next year in conversation “on the impact of the legacy of slavery and segregation and discrimination in its local context" based on the Legacy of Slavery Taskforce Report.
Facilitators will be trained to use the congregational study guide to help generate informative, meaningful, faithful and redemptive transformations on the Pathway to Reconciliation.
When: Saturday, September 14, 2019
Time: 9 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
Location: St. Matthew’s Evanston, 2120 Lincoln St, Evanston, IL 60201
Continental breakfast and snacks provided
All congregations are requested to send one or more volunteers for facilitator training. Facilitation is essential to ensuring that potentially difficult conversations which arise will not be about shaming or blaming but about acknowledging how our past impacts our present and future.
Requirement: Facilitators need to have attended a Crossroads “Understanding and Analyzing Systemic Racism Workshop” (prior to the facilitator training) within the last five years.
Register online. Registration deadline is Wednesday, September 11, 2019. This training and materials are provided free of charge.
