Study Group: Seeing White

All are welcome to join our Sunday morning study/discussion group, originally based on the Scene on Radio podcast, "Seeing White".


The group meets in the LCI library on the first Sunday of each month between services, from 9:30-10:15 AM. New people are welcome to join at any time.  The class is team-taught and each session culminates in a Scripture-based reflection that explores how we as Christians are called to live out our faith in a racialized world. 

For more details, or to suggest a future study topic, please email Ellen Kolarik or  Jill Van Zanten.
