The COS Antiracism Team wants to try again, offering an opportunity to deepen our roots for understanding racism.
Come on Sunday, December 8 from 12:45-3 pm at Church of the Servant. The COS Antiracism Team has again invited Mark Mulder to share his insights with us. Mark is a professor of Sociology at Calvin University and is a member of Sherman Street Church.
Mark says, “Congregational engagement with their communities is so widespread that it’s considered a norm. However, congregations don’t always possess good understanding of social stratification, poverty, or racism.” Using insights from social science, Mark will help us think about community engagement, civic engagement, and how congregations play a vital role.
Since this is also the Christmas Brunch day at COS, we encourage attendees to first attend the Brunch and enjoy the food offerings. Then, a 12:45 pm, we will gather in another part of the building for our antiracism session. We are grateful Mark was able to reschedule. We think this will be a good opportunity for us to think more deeply about being a good neighbor.
