Just as Jesus called the first disciples to follow him, we are invited to be followers of “The Way.” In what’s known as the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus offers first a glimpse of the promise of life with God. As anyone who attempts the journey knows, it is never as simple as it seems. So after sharing the hope of what the world can be, Jesus offers practical advice on how exactly we as followers can begin to choose another way in our everyday lives–the way of happiness.

This session will be a conversation about prejudice, white privilege, and anti-racism work. This session is about what it means to become an ally (ally as a verb, not a noun) with people of color and standing against racism. We will explore these ideas:
- What are microaggresions?
- What does it mean to stand in solidarity with people of color?
- What spiritual practices can support the journey of becoming an ally?
While this conversation is especially helpful for people
who identify as white, anyone is welcome to attend.
Facilitated by Rev. Alycia Erickson
