Leap of Faith Summer Book Study

Book: Waking Up White and Finding Myself in the Story of Race

Author: Debby Irving

Thank you for your commitment to this journey of learning and exploration into issues of racism, power, privilege and leadership.  It is our hope and prayer that the reading and discussion time will offer an entry point to acknowledge our roles in racial injustice, and help expand our understanding of what it means to love our neighbor.  CTK Social Justice Team

  • Third gathering for discussion: Thursday, 8/24, 6:30-8:00; CTK Lounge

Reading:  Chapters 34-40 (pages 187-249)

Consider the questions at the end of each chapter, and write down other questions and thoughts that come to mind to share in our time together.  Please do your best to get to all of the gatherings, even if you were not able to complete the reading.  Your voice is needed in the conversation! Questions?  Contact Peggy Indahl, Cell: 612-759-9898, Home: 952-888-4478, or pindahl@msn.com
