Racial Justice Opportunities

Would you like a chance to process all that you have seen, heard, and read in past few weeks?  Would you like to think about how your faith speaks to these issues? Would you like to speak or listen with others in your community? Here are a few opportunities:

  • Just Mercy” Film Discussion

As part of our collective anti-racism journey, Immanuel is hosting online discussions of the 2019 film “Just Mercy.” “Just Mercy” is based on the life work of civil rights attorney Bryan Stevenson and highlights the racial inequities of our criminal justice system. Two dates will be offered: Sunday, June 28, at 3:00 p.m. or Monday, June 29, at 7:00 p.m. Please view the film on your own (currently streaming for free on YouTube, Amazon Prime, Google Play, and other platforms; see www.justmercyfilm.com) and sign up to join a discussion HERE. A Zoom meeting link will be e-mailed to you prior to the discussion.

  • Ongoing Covenant Groups

Because learning and transformation take intentional effort over time, we are beginning several small groups of people who would like to walk together in racial justice.  Each group meeting will have time for learning, prayer, discussion and small steps together.  Wherever you are on the journey of racial justice, you are welcome. If you are interested, sign up HERE to let us know a preferred time and frequency.

  • Book Discussion

All residents of Minnesota are invited to the “One Book/One Minnesota” read of the book “A Good Time for the Truth.”  There is more information HERE.
