Book Study on White Fragility

You are invited to a congregation-wide book study on race.
  • WHAT? White Fragility: Why Is It So Hard for White People to Talk about Race? by Robin DiAngelo (Beacon Press, 2018).   
  • WHEN? The study begins on the week of September 14. We will have two groups both starting the week of Sept. 14th.  One will meet Monday evenings 7- 8 PM starting September 14th.  The other will meet Thursdays 11 AM – Noon starting September 17th.
  • HOW? Sign up by emailing or calling the church office. We will meet on-line via Zoom. 217.356.7238 /  info@firstpres.church 
  • WHO? Everyone in our congregation and community is invited. Pastor Matt Matthews will facilitate. Our Compassion, Peace, and Justice Committee will host.             
  • WHY? Having conversations about race may open us to whole new ways of being “neighbor” and give us ideas about how we can help heal the divisions that divide our nation along racial lines.
