  Healthy Practices: Ending Racism and Understanding White Privilege

This event will focus on the new Sacred Conversation to End Racism curriculum and will be facilitated by Rev. Dr. Velda Love, Minister for Racial Justice, UCC. This is a restorative justice curriculum that will be released by the end of February. Four learning modules speak to how race was constructed, who constructed and sanctioned race as a model for American Society, and what role the Christian Church played in racism. The goal of each session is to deconstruct whiteness as the norm in America. This workshop will also address how this new curriculum compares with the UCC White Privilege curriculum.

The event is only $35...free for pastors who retired from ministry.

Lunch is optional and is $10.

Registration deadline is Monday, February 26.

As you may recall from articles published in our weekly newsletter Keeping You Connected, Healthy Practices for Ministry and Periodic Support Consultations are now combined into a single requirement to maintain standing and is called Healthy Practices for Ministry. There is no longer a distinction between the two. 

This event qualifies as a Healthy Practices for Ministry event. All commissioned, licensed and ordained persons are required to attend Healthy Practices once every two years to maintain standing in the Association. Retired ministers who are no longer engaged in active ministry (pulpit supply, sacraments, weddings/funerals, etc.) may request an exemption.
