Discussing White Fragility

Plymouth's Racial Equity Committee invites you to join a discussion around the book White Fragility: Why is it So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism by Robin DiAngelo. "White Fragility" refers to the defensive moves that white people make when challenged racially and is characterized by emotions such as anger, fear, and guilt, and by behaviors including argumentation and silence. These behaviors, in turn, function to reinstate white racial equilibrium and prevent any meaningful cross-racial dialogue. In her book, DiAngelo examines how white fragility develops, how it protects racial inequality, and what we can do to engage more constructively. A series of discussions will begin this March. Visit the Racial Equity table in the church narthex to borrow a copy of the book and/or to sign up to participate in this conversation.

Embracing Your Spiritual Journey

Sundays, February 17 and 24, 11:30 a.m.

In the United Church of Christ, each person is encouraged to craft their own spiritual journey and determine their own theological perspective. Led by Rev. Dr. David Lee Smith, this class will explore what that means and what personal responsibility it requires. By examining many religious beliefs, we will explore where you/we have been and where you/we are now in our spiritual journey. We will affirm the places we’ve been and the need for all to respect the diversity of beliefs of all persons.
