About the Event
Friends! We are putting our heads and hearts together with Hot Metal Bridge Faith Community to read Elle Dowd's Baptized in Tear Gas: From White Moderate to Abolitionist for the season of Advent! Mike and both Erins are very excited to be offering this new text in a new kind of partnership, AND at a new time! Note that we will be meeting Mondays at 8PM.
Dowd's book is both accessible and powerful, and we're curious and enthusiastic about the kind of conversations it will generate within us and between our congregations. So come along: explore with us Elle's journey through her perception of police and community care, and see what that path may have in store for your own beliefs. What fears and pressures exist for you in that headspace? What does our faith ask of us in spite of our fears? Let's dig in. Elle Dowd herself will even be joining us for a session! See you there!
