Moral Mondays

Annalise Art

“Fight for the things that you care about. But do it in a way that will lead others to join you.

– Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

St. Peter’s Moral Monday Group began in the early summer. We began by reading the book, White Fragility, and discussed its implication in our individual and communal lives. This group is committed to learning about our part in systemic racism as well as educating the congregation. This group is not a political group, does not align with any political party. This group aligns itself with the Gospel, especially the command to love your neighbor.

We will begin reading and discussing our next book, Dear Church: A Love Letter from a Black Preacher to the Whitest Denomination in the US by Rev. Lenny Duncan, a black pastor in the ELCA. Our discussion will begin on Monday October 4th at 7:00 pm on zoom. We meet the first and third Mondays of the month. Look for our resource list on the website under “learn”. We will keep this list updated as we read, watch and listen to resources.

This is hard work and the discussions can become heavy. However, this work is necessary if we want to create change; change that will enable all of God’s children to flourish in God’s earthly kingdom. We invite you to be part of our conversation!

Our youth grow into faithful disciples through education, fellowship and service. I am also excited about the new social ministries in which we are partnering with other Manheim Township churches, such as Lydia’s Closet and Homes for Hope.
