Racism is Rising Again! . . . Here's One Thing You Can Do: Nashville Pledge Program Workshop registration is now open. The Nashville Pledge to End Racism is a workshop conducted by the Beloved Community Committee, designed to give participants confidence in their ability to talk about and confront racism wherever it lives. The program does this through a combination of informative sessions and small group discussions. At the end of the workshop, participants are invited to add their signature to Nashville Pledge banner, as a symbol of their commitment.

Twelve hours is a big commitment to make, but it is worth it. Our next workshop will be in three parts: We will have one Saturday session on Sept. 28, 9 am-4 pm, and then three Wednesday night sessions that will run 6:30-8:30 pm: Oct 2, 16 and Nov 6 and we'd love to have you there. LOCATION: First Unitarian Universalist Church of Nashville - 1800 Woodmont Blvd. Nashville, 37215.

Women of Edgehill will host our annual Afternoon Tea and Book Discussion.

Saturday October 12, 3:00-5:00 at Edgehill UMC. Janet Wolf will discuss her book Practicing Resurrection, The Gospel of Mark and Radical Discipleship.

 

“Wolf explores the timeless issues of poverty, gender, justice, liberation, equality…using Mark as a guide. The stories of the women in Mark are a particular focus…although often unnamed; they are prominent among Jesus’ followers and in Mark’s recounting of the gospel story.”

It “…incorporates stories of those on the margins to uncover how the gospel is alive and well today….”

 

Women from Belmont and Christ UMCs are invited as well.

It is not necessary to have read the book. More info: Margaret Howell howellms320@comcast.net

All are welcome!
