This 3-week course for white Christians explores what it means to act against racism in ways that are both intentional and theologically informed. During this course, we aim to:
1. Understand how a racialised society has shaped our own worldviews, theologies and actions. We’ll also discuss ways to recognise racism systemically and engage with the outworkings of these injustices in daily life.
2. Explore how faith and theology shape our understanding of justice and our approach to acting justly (and what this means for the Church).
3. Think through the action required of us as white Christians with some practical tools.
Date/Time: Three consecutive Monday evenings, the 7th, 14th, and 21st of September from 19:00-21:00.
Cost: R400 per participant
