How many times have you sung the words “I was blind but now I see?” If you’re like us, probably more times than you can remember, much less count. Have you ever stopped to think, though, “but now what?” What good is sight if it doesn’t give us vision? A vision for what’s really going on around us, in private pain and public sorrow. And are we really healed – are we really something other than blind – if we see pain, oppression, and injustice and refuse to do something about it?
That’s why we’re bringing you a new learning community for Christian leaders who want to dive deep into the practice of Christian anti-racism. It’s called Spit and Mud: The Messy Miracle of Sight. Maybe you’ve come to terms with racism in your life, your church, or your theology and need a framework for tearing it down.
If that’s you, we have good news. We’ve partnered with the Rev. Dr. Fatimah Salleh to create a learning space to dive deeper into the work of anti-racism, activism through presence, and the building of beloved community.
Over the course of 10 months, from January through October 2021, she will be guiding small groups of leaders – people just like you – through this vital, complicated, and necessary work.
