Another Opportunity to Attend Workshop on Racism
Seeing the Face of God in Each Other is a free, two-day diocesan workshop that provides an opportunity for people of different racial and ethnic backgrounds to come together and hear one another’s life experience while learning about the history of institutionalized racism. When Saint George’s hosted this worthwhile program a couple of weeks ago, some people were unable to attend. Good news! For those who could not manage the Friday-Saturday timing, the workshop will be offered at Grace Episcopal Church in Silver Spring on two consecutive Saturdays – March 14 and 21, from 8:30 to 4:00 each day. To register, go to the edow.org website, click on News & Events, then the Events Calendar for March 14 which will provide further information and a link to the registration site. Questions? Speak with Connie+ or Margaret McHale.
