Responses from The Episcopal Church

At the highest levels and locally, Bishops and clergy have addressed the issues of the ongoing protests and the use of church property for political propaganda. Fr Ian has not issued a separate statement, but his voice echoes those of the following:


White Fragility: A Book Discussion Group

 

The death of George Floyd has again brought a spotlight to the issue of racism in America. Racial inequality, white supremacy and policing tactics are all front and center in our collective consciousness, but how long will these issues stay at the forefront of our minds. In the past as similar horrendous acts have taken place, we as Americans say “something must be done” and then before long we go back to whatever we call our normal lives.

 

It seems that ‘white America’ doesn’t understand the concepts of systemic racism or white supremacy and therefore doesn’t put any effort into changing. Or maybe these issues are too uncomfortable for us to face, and so we don’t face them. To change requires that you become educated or more aware of systemic racism in America and what needs to happen to deal with it.

 

Peggy Myrick would like to start a discussion group based on the book White Fragility written by Robin DiAngelo. This book is a good starting point to begin that education process. Please join Peggy to discuss how we might start a dialogue on the issues of white supremacy and racial inequality.

 

Hard copies of the book may be hard to come by since most online outlets are sold out and a waitlist has been established. Online book retailers such as Amazon, Kobo and Barnes and Noble all have eBook versions that can be downloaded and may be quicker to purchase. The group will be using the Reading Guide by Ozlem Sensoy and Robin DiAngelo for this book to progress through the chapters. The Reading/Study Guide in PDF can be found free online. Email pamyrick@gmail.com with any questions or for an emailed copy of the Reading/Study Guide.

Grief Support Group Forming

This group will be for "non-death loss", such as loneliness, isolation, or sadness due to the pandemic or general state of the world; the loss of a home or job; divorce, separation, or the end of a significant relationship; or perhaps a tragic accident or illness that has altered your or a loved one's life. Any of these situations can and often do trigger grief, causing us to go back and revisit older traumas that were never quite fully resolved.

 

There is room for about 8-10 participants, and it will be a "closed" group, meaning that once it forms, there will be no newcomers, and once you commit, you agree to remain with the group through to its conclusion. This is because of the trust relationships and bonds that develop between members which are central to the group's process and well-being. The number of sessions will depend on, and roughly match, the number of participants.
 
If you are interested in being part of the group, slated to get started in July, or if you have any questions, please contact Berkeley Johnson by email at berkeley.johnson@gmail.com or phone (805) 550-5133.
