American Creed

Movie Night on ZOOM

American Creed ZOOM Invitation

 

Please join us Wednesday, July 22 at 7 pm for showing of American Creed with  discussion afterwards.  


In the PBS documentary, American Creed, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Pulitzer Prize-winning historian David M. Kennedy, Stanford University professors, come together from remarkably different backgrounds, life experiences and points of view to explore the idea of a unifying American creed. Their spirited inquiry frames the stories of a range of citizen-activists striving to realize their own visions of America's promise across deep divides.     

 

The movie, American Creed, is part of the Sacred Ground series on Race and Faith. Sacred Ground is a race dialogue series developed by the Episcopal Church and is framed as a spiritual journey, grounded in the Christian faith - in the example of Jesus Christ and the power of scripture, prayer, God's grace, and the Holy Spirit to help us step closer to the dream of beloved community.  The focus of the materials is the history of race and racism in the US.    

 

The 10 part series is built around a powerful online curriculum of documentary films and readings that focus on Indigenous, Black, Latino, and Asian/Pacific American histories as they intersect with European American histories.


Grace Episcopal will offer this series this Fall.  If you are interested in joining this class please email sharon@graceepiscopallexington.org

Yard sale cancelled
funds still needed

for South Sudanese
Students!

Sadly, it does not seem safe to hold our Sudan Mission Yard Sale scheduled for July 11, so we will not be collecting any more sale items in the Parish Hall.   Many thanks to those who have already donated goods! Proceeds of selling them on Facebook, starting July 1, will go to the South Sudan Student Fund.

 

The fundraising will go on, however, so that John, Mary and William from Tonj, South Sudan can pursue secondary education in the 2021 academic year (January-December). The goal is $3,500. The Christian Outreach Committee has already given $1,500 to this effort. If you would like to make a cash donation to help complete the goal, you can send a check to Grace Episcopal Church with "South Sudan Students" in the memo line, or make an online donation by selecting "Community Outreach" from the drop down menu on the church website at www.graceepiscopallexington.org/give
