A Message from Rev. Shannon Dill
As I expressed during worship on Pentecost Sunday and as we have been sharing on our Daily Check-ins online this week, we invite the Saint Luke’s family to join in a 21-day Racial Equity Challenge as one way to grow into the likeness of Jesus in the season ahead. The first option, developed by Myers Park Presbyterian Church, offers some resources for children as well as adults. The second, is Dr. Eddie Moore’s 21 Day Challenge, from which the Myers Park resource was adapted. Both offer a variety of resources to help you reflect, listen, notice, learn and unlearn, as we engage the complex issues that we face as a nation, particularly as it pertains to race. It is an opportunity to hear different voices and perspectives. It is an invitation to self-examination and honesty. It is a time to open ourselves to the Holy Spirit. If nothing else, it is a step that we can take toward the power of God’s saving love and reconciliation in the world.
We are working on more options for engaging transformative resources on anti-racism. Please check out our anti-racism page to get to many of these resources.
In the meantime, if you would like to have conversations with David, Phil, or myself, please do not hesitate to reach out.
