Starting this summer and fall, Bishop Leila Ortiz and Metro D.C. Synod Racial Equity Team invite all rostered leaders to participate in Sacred Ground a film-based dialog series on race and faith.
In this 12-part series, small groups are invited to walk through chapters of America’s history of race and racism, while weaving in threads of family story, economic class, and political and regional identity.
Originally created by the Episcopal Church, the series is built around a powerful online curriculum of documentary films and readings that focus on Indigenous, Black, Latino, and Asian/Pacific American histories as they intersect with European American histories.
Sacred Ground is a spiritual journey, grounded in the example of Jesus Christ and the power of scripture, prayer, God’s grace, and the Holy Spirit to help us step closer to the dream of beloved community.
Those who have already participated in the series from our synod found it very engaging and helpful in exploring these topics and engaging together in dialog.
If you are interested in participating in the upcoming series, please let us know by completing the form below.
