We are excited to announce that Beloved Conversations is coming back to East Shore. This workshop has been attended by over 60 members of our congregration and feedback has been very positive.
Beloved Conversations, Meditations on Race and Ethnicity is a 9 week symposium that explores race and ethnicity in an experiential curriculum with a focus on moving from our heads to our hearts. Participants report feeling more courageous engaging in cross-cultural dialogue, more comfortable taking risks to communicate deeply held assumptions about race and ethnicity and much more.
