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 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. It concludes with a session devoted to identifying and choosing next steps.

The ELCA Indiana-Kentucky Synod, in partnership with Christ Lutheran Church in Valparaiso, IN, invites you to join in this discussion circle beginning Wednesday, January 18, 2023, and meeting from 6-7:30 pm Central, 7-8:30 pm Eastern every other week for 11 sessions, with our final session falling on June 7, 2023. A weekday session will be offered during Lent for church staff; see the registration site for details. We will meet via Zoom.

Registration is open and will close on December 19, 2022, or when registration is full, at 80 participants.
