Day of Learning
September 25 @ 9:15 am - 3:45 pm$50
Join the ELCA Oregon Synod for a Day of Learning on Saturday, Sept. 25, from 9:15 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. Everyone is welcome to this online event, which will explore the theme “Faithful in the Fray: Facing our Histories of Racism.” We will be joined by the Rev. Lenny Duncan as the keynote speaker to talk about “Racism and the Church.”
Workshops will be both morning and afternoon and will include themes such as anti-racist reading of the Bible, facing the climate crisis with honesty and hope, hidden stories from the margins and our own lives, crafting new liturgies as sacred collective action, how to have tough conversations in congregations, and honoring our grief around the history of racism in our state and world.
The entire day’s event is only $50 per screen for adults over 21. Under age 21 is free.
