The past several months have brought challenge upon challenge — concerns about illness, employment, and what our future might look like. The strain of these times has also uncovered the deepest wound in our American psyche — the wound of racism. While we may not have all contributed to the sin of racism in the same way, white privilege makes many of us complicit in ways that we are aware and in ways that we are unaware. In this retreat, we will begin by seeing — and asking God to help us to see — the impact of white privilege in out own lives and in the lives of our siblings. Then we will consider how God might be inviting us into a recovery of sorts so that we may live in justice and dismantle White Supremacy one step, one day at a time.
