Sacred Ground is a film -and readings- based dialogue series on race, grounded in faith.  Small groups are invited to walk through chapters of America’s history of race and racism, while weaving in threads of family story, economic class, and political and regional identity.

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.

 Beginning next week, the West Mission Area is offering 3- 90-minute meetings every other week to explore this important curriculum.

The small groups will meet on:

  • Thursdays 7-8:30pm (beginning June 4)
  • Saturdays 9-10:30am (beginning June 6)
  • Sundays 7-8:30pm (beginning June 7)

All spaces have been filled for this round!

Once you have registered on SignUp Genius, you will receive a follow up email with instructions on how to prepare for your first meeting and the materials you will need. If you’ve already signed up and have NOT received a follow up email, please Contact Jennifer Vasquez at jen@stpaulsmaumee.org.

Sacred Ground is a time and opportunity to hear the story of our past with regard to race, to hear our stories of our pasts. By listening to those stories and hearing them, and then telling our own stories together, and then looking possibly at the stories of our very faith, somehow, from the travail and the reality of all of those stories may emerge hope for a new day.
