Spit & Mud: The Messy Miracle of Seeing Christian Racism
6 week Online Workshop
starts August 4, 2020
Join Rev. Dr. Fatimah S. Salleh for Spit and Mud: The Messy Miracle of Seeing Christian Racism, a faith-based online educational series tackling racism from a theological perspective. This course is designed to confront both the historical and present-day impact of racism within the Christian church and more specifically, within the Latter-day Saint religion.
The program provides instructor-lead teaching and discussion. The 6-week online workshop series offers a learning experience aimed at fostering deeper introspection and insight into the task of dismantling racism for those within and/ or raised with LDS beliefs. Part of this study includes looking into scriptural verses to more fully understand the imperative to do the work of justice.
The hope is that by learning and participating in this workshop series, a person can begin to be more fully examine their own beliefs, explore faithful ways to dismantle racism and be empowered to do the work of justice.
This workshop will meet once a week for an hour and a half. An electronic workshop manual will be provided for all participants.
Cost of this workshop is $385*
The workshop series starts on Tuesday, August 4, 2020, at 6:30 pm MST/ 7:30 CST/ 8:30 EST pm
