undoingracism

In a time of Charlottesville, the alt-right, Black Lives Matter, and threats to the status of immigrants, it helps to have a tool kit of how to relate to the community outside our church walls and the conversation in the public square. The Healing Racism program of DioCal instructs attendees on how to identify the structure of institutional racism, be a supportive ally, and recognize the work of Gospel in the social justice movement of the Church. The course is open to anyone in the diocese and a requirement for ordination in the Episcopal Church.
Cost: $25 for materials, scholarship is available.

5marksofmission

What does it mean to be a member of the Anglican Communion/Episcopal Church? You are invited to explore this question as we reflect on the Anglican Communion's "five marks of mission":

   1. To proclaim the good news of God's kingdom
   2. To teach, baptize, and nurture new believers
   3. To respond to human need by loving service
   4. To seek to transform unjust structures of society
   5. To strive to safeguard the integrity of creation and sustain and renew the life of the earth

Wednesdays, Sept. 27 - Oct. 25, 7 p.m. - 8 p.m.

book extrememeasures

Part memoir, part journalistic essay, Dr. Jessica Nutik Zitter draws on her medical experience in intensive care and palliative care to explore how we die - the ways in which the health care system intersects with the end of life, for better and for worse. We will read and discuss Nutik Zitter's book as a starting point for our own reflection on death and dying, and planning for end of life care.
