In 2021, Bishop DeDe Duncan-Probe and a number of her colleagues in the House of Bishops formed a Sacred Ground circle to explore the history and legacy of racism in the United States. Sacred Ground is an intensive 10-session curriculum developed by the Episcopal Church. Small groups engage challenging, healing conversations about race, grounded in faith.
This week, our bishop and others from her Sacred Ground circle are in Alabama for a racial justice pilgrimage, visiting civil rights landmarks, museums, and memorials in Montgomery and Selma. Episcopal News Service reports on their itinerary and its impact.
Bishop DeDe will share some of this journey on Tuesday, February 15th at 7:30 a.m. as part of her weekly Coffee & Conversation” series on Facebook Live:
