Exploring Racism and White Privilege: A Spiritual Quest with Rev. Jane Vennard

  • March 22, 2018
  • 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
  • Good Shepherd Episcopal Church, 8545 East Dry Creek Road, Centennial, CO


Registration is closed

Meaningful connection across racial divides is difficult without exploring the reality of white privilege. Many white people are unaware that rather than race belonging to others (he is African American, she is Asian, they are Hispanic), whiteness is also a racial construct. Whiteness carries advantages we may be unaware of in many aspects of life and relationships. This workshop is to facilitate waking up to these realities through presentation, storytelling, reflection and sharing.

The Rev. Jane E. Vennard was called to a ministry of teaching and spiritual direction and ordained by the United Church of Christ. She is adjunct faculty at the Iliff School of Theology, Garrett Evangelical Theological School and Columbia Seminary. She has a private practice of spiritual direction and leads retreats in a variety of ecumenical settings. 

Cost: $25
