Moving Mountains – Healing Racism

Move Mountains with Human Concerns: Racial Justice and Our Faith

“The (person) who moves a mountain begins by carrying away small stones.”― Confucius

Human Concerns Commission at the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist invites you to take a deeper look at how racial oppression and privilege affect us and how we can “move mountains” to interrupt and heal racism by recognizing the small stones that keep it in place and learning how each of us can start carrying those stones away.

Join us Sundays in January for group study of  Jim Wallis’ book:

America’s Original Sin: Racism, White Privilege, and the Bridge to New America.  This book, written by a white evangelical minister who has been at the forefront of Civil Rights advocacy since the 1960s, will be a jumping-off point for our discussion issues of race, religion, and our community. The discussion will extend over the Sundays in January after the 11 AM mass (12:15 – 1:30 PM). Copies of the book are available in the parish offices for $12 or, if you wish, you can order a Kindle edition for $4. We will use a Discussion Guide from Sojourners.
