Before we can act, we need to understand ... 

Teach me to do your will, for you are my God.
Let your good spirit lead me on a level path. - Psalm 143:10

Taking time to understand the perspectives of the people we serve and the complexities of any issue helps us avoid a "Ready, Fire, Aim!" result.

A Place at the Table: Sacred and Secular Conversations in Community

Mondays, October 11, January 10 (2022) at 6:30 pm
October 11 topic coming soon!

To provide greater flexibility and reach more people, we are changing "Good Reads" from monthly to quarterly meetings and offering a broader palette of options, oriented around a central theme. So our discussions won't just be about a book, rather they will be topic-oriented. Our schedule will be similar, second Mondays at 6:30 pm. Registration is required. You are invited to any or all of the options!

To help our small businesses, please consider ordering books from a local, independent bookstore. (If you purchase from Park Road Books, tell them it is for Christ Episcopal Church's Good Reads book club and they will give you a 20% discount.)

The Space Between Us

Communication is how we share ourselves in this epic conversation called life. You are invited to develop this life-giving skill at The Space Between Us, a three-day experience that will transform the way you communicate at home, at work, and in the world. Classes meet 9:00 AM - 3:30 PM, Tuesday through Thursday. See upcoming dates and register »

Sacred Ground: A Dialogue on Race and Faith

Sacred Ground is a film- and readings-based dialogue series on race, grounded in faith. 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. Two new groups will begin September 2021. Learn more and register here »

Legacy and Justice pilgrimage

Montgomery and Selma, Alabama
From police shootings to incarceration statistics, and from school accessibility to poverty rates, racism is a present reality that plagues our city and our country. Our faith calls us to confront and confess our failures and fears in order that we may be reconciled one with another. Please consider joining us on our next pilgrimage to the Legacy and Justice Museum and National Memorial for Peace and Justice in Montgomery, Alabama. Established by the Equal Justice Initiative, these sites give Americans an opportunity to learn and respond to some of the racial injustice of our collective past. Learn more and register for the next pilgrimage »
