    Virtual Conversations on Systemic Racism

    2:00 PM-3:30 PM
    2020.06.21

    Join the ASDIC (Antiracism Study Dialogue Circles) and FREC (Facilitating Racial Equity Collective) communities as we respond to this historical moment.

    In light of the murder of George Floyd and countless police killings of Black and Brown people, the world is reassessing the role of both police and society at large in addressing system-wide and structural racism. We wish to look at what this moment is about, how it connects to America’s history of systemic racism, and the forces that continue to sustain racism in Minnesota and the nation.

    With the support of Professor Joe R. Feagin of Texas A&M University, along with Minnesota antiracist activists and scholars, we will host four 90-minute conversations over the summer. We will be on Zoom with a short breakout session after each conversation.

    There is no fee for these workshops, but your tax-deductible donation will allow us to continue to offer ASDIC’s unique antiracism trainings in our community and beyond. Suggested donation in support of this programming is $5 per session. Donate here.

    Contemplative Prayer Gathering

    8:00 AM-9:00 AM
    2020.06.24
    As you know, six members of the United community visited Fr. Richard Rohr at his Center for Action and Contemplation back in March, where they participated in Fr. Rohr’s contemplative prayer session. They are now bringing elements of this practice back to our United community.
    All are invited to a shared Contemplative Gathering at 8:00 a.m. CST every Wednesday morning to gather together in silence and sit in communal contemplation. This is an opportunity to find grounding in the moment, and to share in that grounding energy with similarly self-directed explorers. The last ten minutes of the session are devoted to sharing aloud prayers that have been submitted during the week.
