Sunday, October 18, 2020, 4:30 PM - 6:00 PM
You’re invited to our first Quarterly Plenary session of Sacred Ground – A Conversation on Race and Faith at St. Thomas on Sunday, October 18th at 4:30 PM. The fall session will be an evening of conversations on American ideals and identity in response to the PBS Documentary American Creed. This film brings former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Pulitzer Prize-winning historian David M. Kennedy together from remarkably different backgrounds, life experiences, and points of view to explore the idea of a unifying American creed. Their spirited inquiry frames stories from a range of citizens striving to realize their own versions of America’s promise across deep divides.
Participants are strongly encouraged to watch the film in advance. It’s available to stream for free online at www.americancreed.org/watch.
We will gather virtually using Zoom on Sunday, October 18th at 4:30 PM for conversations alternating between small group and large forum format.
An email reminder with the Zoom link and instructions will be sent to the parish in the early afternoon the day of the event. Everyone is invited to join us, including youth and families; please note that the documentary is rated PG. No one will be turned away from participating in this conversation, but parental guidance is advised for children.
