Book Discussion Group
Conversations on Justice, Race and Faith
This fall, we'll be reading three books that explore contemporary issues of race in our justice system and in the church. While these books explore a common theme, you do not have to attend all three discussions – come when you can! And as always, you are welcome in the conversation even if you haven't read the book.
We will meet at the Forbes House from 2-3:30pm.

We continue with the final book in our series: Race in a Post-Obama America: The Church Responds, edited by David Maxell of the Presbyterian Publishing Corporation.
Recent events in the United States have provoked not just a willingness to discuss issues of racism in this country but a desire to do something meaningful to confront it. Race in a Post-Obama America offers concerned Christians the chance to clarify terms and issues around racism and discern how to respond.
The reader will learn the basic definitions and history around racism in the United States, be presented with current thoughts on institutional racism and what is to be done to end it, and learn about specific actions individuals and churches are taking. Designed for individual or group study, the book includes questions for reflection and discussion.
