White Fragility Book Study
Thursdays at Noon via Zoom: July 16-August 20.
Lanie Sipes and I are hosting a book study on “White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism” by Robin DiAngelo. Lanie is the Associate Pastor at Christ Presbyterian Church in Toledo; I am the General Presbyter of Maumee Valley Presbytery, although this discussion is not limited to folks in our presbytery. It is open to all!
We are wanting to help us carry the anti-racism conversation forward, spurned by recent events in our country that have once again shined a light on the deep impact that racism continues to have on our nation. Our goal is to provide a safe place for discussion, as we seek racial justice together.

You may also want to secure a copy of the book. It is currently listed as “temporarily out of stock” at Amazon, and so we encourage you to get the Kindle version, a used book, borrow from a friend/library. Whatever way is best for you in your context.
