Sometimes You Gotta Be Brave:  Racism, Activism and Faith Communities  ~  On Saturday, February 3, 2018 The Reverend Ada Renee Williams, Minister of Social Justice & Civic Engagement at Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Baltimore, MD. will lead the St. Phillip’s Community in a four-hour workshop entitled, “Sometimes You Gotta Be Brave: Racism, Activism, and Faith Communities.” A conversation informed by Micah 6:8, Isaiah 58:12c “…you shall be the repairer of the breach, restorer of the streets to live in” and Proverbs 31:8-9.   Together we will examine the relationship between God and Justice, wrestle with the anti-Black racism specific to the American narrative and glean lessons from Ferguson to Baltimore to #MeToo.  We will identify how faith communities fit into activism and how they are able to make a difference within and beyond their communities of faith.

Contact the church office to register at 410-266-9755.  We ask a $5 registration fee.  Please RSVP by Saturday, January 27th!  The morning will begin with continental breakfast and sign in at 8:30am. The workshop starts promptly at 9:00am.  Please arrive no later than 8:45am.
