    Imagining No Racism during Lent

    January 9, 2024 / By Georgia Whitney, Co-Convener of the Conference Commission on Religion & Race / .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

    Lent is a season of introspection and awareness, a great time to reflect on some of the challenging realities of our society. So, if you’re looking for a good Lenten study next month, please think about being part of the next Imagine No Racism class.  

    The Conference Commission on Religion and Race (CCORR) will offer this a six-session small group study on Zoom, from Feb. 16 through March 22 from 10-11:30 a.m. These highly interactive sessions will be facilitated by CCORR team members the Rev. Holly Strickland and Georgia Whitney. The class limit is 15. 

    The curriculum is meant as a beginning, a way to launch the ongoing work of addressing, and ultimately, dismantling racism, expanding knowledge, and developing skills for addressing racism in its many current manifestations. It can empower individuals and local churches to discern how God is calling them to apply the new knowledge and skills in their lives and missions. Each 90-minute session includes a strong connection to scripture and prayer, and builds on prior sessions. 

    In six weeks, you’ll gain a shared language and shared set of learning engagements as a foundation for developing and implementing goals that are meaningful and powerful in your setting.  

    If you’d like to find out more, or register for the class, contact Georgia Whitney at (585) 410-4370 or by email at
