Word of Hope Lutheran, in Lexington, KY,
“The Color of Compromise” Discussion Group invites you to join us for our ongoing Zoom discussion of the video series “The Color of Compromise: The Truth about the American Church’s Complicity in Racism”, written by Jemar Tisby.
These videos are based on the bestselling book by the same name. Here’s a description from Amazon:
“An acclaimed, timely narrative of how people of faith have historically–up to the present day–worked against racial justice. And a call for urgent action by all Christians today in response. The Color of Compromise is both enlightening and compelling, telling a history we either ignore or just don’t know. Equal parts painful and inspirational, it details how the American church has helped create and maintain racist ideas and practices. You will be guided in thinking through concrete solutions for improved race relations and a racially inclusive church.”

We meet on Zoom every 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month at 7pm central time.

Third Lutheran Church, Louisville, and Grace & Glory Lutheran, Goshen, have a monthly online book club, called Ethos Book Club.
Ethos Book Club was formed as an online gathering, sponsored by Grace & Glory Lutheran and Shiloh United Methodist churches in Goshen, KY, for those interested in racial justice, anti-racism, race history, and race culture to learn how we, as people of God, might become better allies for our sisters and brothers of color, and to do this in a safe, non-judgmental setting.
It is an ecumenically diverse group that is focused on reading and discussing books that educate us further on systemic racism, racial discrimination, and learning more about the black experience. We invite others across the Synod to join us by pre-registering here:
