RUTHERFORD CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH UCC - LENTEN DISCUSSION FORUM
Rutherford, NJ, 2/24/2017 - Rutherford Congregational Church will host a six-part discussion forum entitled "White Privilege, Let's Talk". This Lenten series is open to the general public and will be led by RCC's pastor, Rev. Ronald E. Verblaauw. The series will be held on Wednesday evenings at 7:30pm at the church, 251 Union Avenue, Rutherford and will begin March 8th, followed by additional discussions March 15, 22, 29, April 12 and 19.
This curriculum is a concerted effort to enable allies to see with new eyes how privilege works. It aims to illuminate how white people in America, at every economic stratum and in a myriad of ways, receive privileged consideration simply because they are white. It offers the promise and the possibility that those who commit to engaging in this dialogue can develop higher degrees of awareness of privilege and its consequences.
Discussions will be held in an informal setting in the church's community hall with light refreshments served. Childcare is available by reservation by calling the church's office: 201-438-6324.
