The Racial Justice Ministry Team invites your participation in our Faith Enrichment Series for Black History Month. We are uniquely blessed to be able to share and engage with the stories of two people with extensive experience in the ongoing Civil Rights struggle over many decades.
Did you know that Pastor Dave Markowich actually marched with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.? Join us for two informative video interviews to learn more about his experiences as an active participant in the Civil Rights movement in the 1960’s and his ongoing commitment to racial justice. Each session will include an opportunity to engage in discussion – what connects us to Dave’s story, how does it extend our own learning, and how does it challenge us to act?
We have also invited Vicar Sara’s friend Beryl Anderson-West to share her experiences working with Rosa Parks as her Director of International Communications. Beryl was also the first Black TV reporter for the U.S. Supreme Court press corps, and she has produced and anchored her own TV shows. Her direct connection to one of the heroes of the Civil Rights movement allows us to engage with history in real time. Like the interviews with Pastor Dave, there will be an opportunity to engage in discussion about what that history might mean for us today.
The sessions are not limited to adults. School-age children, especially young adults, may find this activity particularly relevant since they will likely have assignments related to Black History Month.
We will meet on Zoom at the link below. The schedule is as follows (starting each Thursday at 7:30):
– Thursday February 4th & 11th: Pastor Dave
– Thursday February 18th & 25th: Beryl Anderson-West.
