RACISM CONVERSATION
 
Holding Up Your Corner by F. Willis Johnson
 
How do you talk about racial prejudice, entrenched poverty and exploitation, segregation, the loss of local education and employment, the ravages of addiction, and more? Holding Up Your Corner walks you through a self-directed process of determining what role your church can play in your specific community. You’ll learn how to use testimony and other narrative devices, proclamation, guided group conversations, and other tactics in order to own the calling and responsibility we have as Christians. Examples from a wide variety of churches and leaders make this a valuable resource for everyone concerned with racial justice.
 
We will ZOOM together as a large group on Wednesdays at 3:30 to discuss thoughts and questions about the reading. We will start the book discussion on Wednesday, July 8.
 
The book is available on Kindle and we have ordered copies for church members to purchase. Books will be placed on the bench outside of the office after June 23 from 8am-2pm. The cost is $12 per book and you can place the money in the envelope provided in the book and put the envelope in the church mail slot.
LIFE CHANGING BIBLE STUDY
 
 
Starts Thursday, June 25th
 
This weekly Bible study will be held via Zoom every Thursday at 1:30. Please join in whenever you are available.
 
We will use the “Life Journal” which identifies scripture readings for each day of the week. You can purchase a journal from the church office or at https://www.liferesources.cc/
It’s okay if you don’t have one. We will give you the daily scriptures.
 
We will read the passage together and then each of us will do the following:
S – Identify which scripture verse spoke to you.
O – What is your observation for this verse – what does it mean to you?
A – How can you apply the meaning to your life?
P Pray that God will help you change based on your application of the verse.
 
Following our group study, everyone is encouraged to read the scripture daily and do SOAP in a journal. During the course of our time together, you can share any meaningful passages.
 
The most important or life changing aspect of this study, is that we get into the habit of reading the Word daily. If you can’t make a Zoom session, it is okay. Unlike an ongoing Bible Study, you just pick up the next time you attend.
 
Hope you will join us!
