Dear Sacred Journey Companions
I am looking forward to yet another year of book readings and discussions. We will begin again on September 21 with "America's Original Sin - Racism, White Privilege, and the Bridge to a New America" by Jim Wallis, founder of Sojourners. (See Link Below)
I know that some were expecting to begin with a different book, but in light of the recent spike in hate crimes and open displays of racism and white supremacy in our nation including the horrifying events in Charlottesville, VA., we have a sense of urgency to respond to the current climate in a critical and relevant way. In discussing this change with Fr. Gary, he immediately and fully agreed that this is the right thing to do and the right time to do it.
I am attaching both the flyer for "America's Original Sin" as well as The Sacred Journey schedule for the entire year. That way you can plan in advance. I hope that you all can join us for this important series of discussions and practices in truth and reconciliation.
Grace and Peace,
There is no peace without justice. There is not justice without truth. - Brother Dennis
