Whiteness as Heresy, in the Common Room
When a white supremacist group called Patriot Prayer came to Berkeley, All Soulsians showed up to witness to God’s love and a radically different vision for what it means to be a white Christian in our context. This 3-part series, Whiteness as Heresy, will explore and further articulate that vision. Professor Scott MacDougall brings the theological resources of our rich tradition and Laura Eberly brings her expertise as a diversity and equity consultant and community organizer to the questions; 1) How we might address race, and specifically questions of whiteness and white supremacy, theologically as Episcopalians? 2) What defines a culture of white supremacy, and what foils and alternatives does our Christian commitment offer us? 3) Finally, how might we, as an All Souls community, deepen our commitment and capacity to address racial injustice in our time?
The Heart of Lent: Preparing for the Mystery of Easter, in the Parish Hall
In this three-week class, starting February 10, we will take a new look at Lent—what it is, why it matters, and what it’s really all about. Through story, scripture, meditation, and practices to try at home, we will explore ways to adopt and develop a posture, a stance, an orientation that helps us to open our hearts and enter Lent in a more intentional, awake way as we prepare for the Easter and the Feast of the Resurrection. Co-taught by the Rev. Phil Brochard, Emily Hansen Curran, and Sheryl Fullerton.
