“In a world divided by difference, we…strive to be connected by it.”
– Drew Gilpen Faust

Beloved Conversations is a series of small group conversations, which use story-telling and relationships to reflect on how race affects:

  • Our life
  • Our church
  • Our community

“Beloved Conversations will engage you in self-reflection and community reflection, and build the skills for deeper, more authentic cross-racial relationships. It is the first step in a long-term plan of building Anti-Racism leadership and capacity in our congregation. I invite you to make the stretch for this significant commitment to moving towards our multicultural dreams.”
– Rev. Jennifer Nordstrom
