The Grace-Westminster Book Club is starting a new book…please join us!

Waking Up White by Debbie Irving is the book Irving wishes someone had handed her decades ago. By sharing her sometimes cringe-worthy struggle to understand racism and racial tensions, she offers a fresh perspective on bias, stereotypes, manners, and tolerance. As Irving unpacks her own long-held beliefs about colorblindness, being a good person, and wanting to help people of color, she reveals how each of these well-intentioned mindsets actually perpetuated her ill-conceived ideas about race. She also explains why and how she's changed the way she talks about racism, works in racially mixed groups, and understands the antiracism movement as a whole.

Concurrent with Irving’s book we will begin a weekly reading from Howard Thurman’s Meditations of the Heart, a beautiful collection of meditations and prayers by one of our greatest spiritual leaders.

Join us by Zoom Mondays at 7:00 PM. Email Bobbie Hartman for Zoom connection.
