Hosted by Grass Valley Friends Meeting

Contact Amy Cooke for the link to the online meeting: amylisette-AT-gmail-DOT-com

This group will explore our experiences of racial inequality, white privilege, and white supremacy through worship sharing. 

Please enter the group with the following in mind: We acknowledge that this is deep, challenging work.  We hold our gathering tenderly and encourage each other to speak honestly, from our experiences.  We are encouraged to drop politically correct or purely intellectual concepts in favor of holding our body sensations and emotions that arise as we explore our experiences.  We maintain confidentiality (what is said in the group, stays in the group). 

Attached please find a White Privilege Guide that was published by the Chicago Theological Seminary.  While we will not be following the guide, it has a lot of very useful information on White Privilege.

Queries:

  • What emotions and body sensations have accompanied you as you have read and witnessed racism and white privilege in America?
  • What emotions and body sensations have accompanied you as you have been working to "unpack" your own white privilege and internalized racism?
  • What are the greatest challenges you have faced? 
  • What is God's message for you in this work?
