Second Anti-Racism Training Session

Saturday, Aug. 26, is the second of three Anti-racism Training for clergy, spouses and church leaders for this year; the date was changed due to our trainer’s schedule. It begins at 10 a.m. at the Disciples Center at Tawakoni, and ends around 3 p.m. A third session is scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 19, at Great Bend First Christian Church, same times.

Anti-racism training is mandatory for all clergy in the Kansas region in 2017 in order to maintain standing regardless of their status in the every-third-year requirement for Boundary Training. This training is also open to all non-clergy church leaders who would like to be part of the discussion on how to counter the racism among us. This event takes the place of our usual Boundary Training for this year. One-third of Kansas clergy still need to register for either the Aug. 26 or Oct. 19 session.

Trainer Nancy Eggen is the Minister for Racial Justice Initiatives for the Kansas-Oklahoma Conference of the United Church of Christ. She will lead participants to explore the difference between acts of racial bigotry and systemic racism, to learn more about the difficulty of talking about race and our history as a racialized society, and to explore white privilege.
