SEATTLE IN BLACK AND WHITE BOOK STUDY

August 6th, 20th, 27th, and September 10th, 17th 9-11am, Zoom
Hi there. My name is Ryan Winklemann. I would love to help facilitate a book study using Seattle in Black and White: The Congress of Racial Equality and the Fight for Equal Opportunity. The goal would be to help Bethany's staff and congregation learn about our region's history with racism and help them understand the commitment and community required to make real and lasting change.

Seattle in Black and White is a book that offers two lessons that could go a long way in helping the church gain a greater understanding about how to grow as a positive community member in our region.

First, it offers the knowledge of this history or racism and segregation in the greater Seattle community, at least a piece of it. Seattle as a region has a reputation as a liberal and accepting place, but that unfortunately has never been the case. Seattle in Black and White exposes its reader to the harsh realities of racism in the 1950s and 1960s in Seattle, and provides the tools to see how those patterns still exist in many parts of the greater Seattle area today.

Second, it offers the tools to make change happen in our city, but does not sugarcoat the level of investigation, planning, coordination, and effort required to make just a small difference. It also demonstrates the importance of collaboration across church and secular institutions in order to move the needle in a positive direction to make Seattle look more like God's kingdom.

ABOUT OUR COMMUNITY

It's great to be together on Sundays. We worship, we say hello to friends, we experience the joy of a community where Jesus is on the move. The challenge of Sundays is that depth is hard to come by. Sure, we can get drawn into a conversation that gets a little deeper, but eventually, we're heading for the exits, back out into the world, into our jobs, our families, our neighborhoods.

The community we experience on Sundays doesn't have to end there. That's why we have Small Groups. Micro-expressions of our larger church family, meeting together in each other's homes, growing together, finding a depth and richness we can't find anywhere else. That's what groups are all about. Life together in Jesus happens in our Small Groups.

Our hope at Bethany is that everyone finds their place in a group. Think of each group like a dinner table with lots of seating. We want you to find your seat at the table and be able to enjoy laughter, friendship, and great conversation. For more information about Eastside Small Groups, contact us!

Grateful to be on the journey with you,
-Pastor Travis
