What is Race?

As Peace continues our study And Who is My Neighbor? Talking about race and racial equity, this Sunday we asked, “What is Race?” Stephanie Glaros (at the center of the picture), from Humans of Minneapolis, shared her pictures and stories about how she has encountered race and how she is owning her part in the systemic racism that exists in the United States and in particular Minnesota.

The book White Fragility by Robin DiAngelo has empowered Stephanie as she works to be anti-racist. DiAngelo’s work helped her to see her own denial and how she can be a better neighbor and human with the people she encounters everyday. Stephanie is living out her vocation and says, “the joys of my work come in deeply listening to other people’s stories.” 

Who might God be putting in your path today? How might you listen deeply to their story? 

Join a small group at Peace. Sunday at 10am or Wednesday at 7pm now through April 1.
