What is racial equity? Why is it important? As people of Christian faith, why does this matter?
This past February, Good Shepherd Church welcomed Percy Brown, Jr., the Director of Equity and Student Achievement for the Middleton Cross Plains Area School District. In 2016, Madison365 recognized Percy Brown, Jr. as one of the most influential African-Americans in the state of Wisconsin. Check out this video from his forum talk at Good Shepherd’s Madison Campus from February 4th.
Continuing the Conversation
On Monday, June 8 at 7:00 p.m. we will be sharing a special live-stream of the academy-award nominated documentary “A Time for Burning” to watch together as a congregation. Following the broadcast, we will share a link to a Zoom video chat hosted by Good Shepherd members for further large and small group discussions.
About the Film
In 1966, Lutheran Film Associates commissioned a documentary film to capture the story of Augustana Lutheran Church in Omaha, NE as the pastor of the congregation begins efforts to reach out African American Lutherans in their community. Over 50 years later, the difficult conversations featured in this film echo within our communities and churches today.
