Adult Religious Education Six-Week Winter Course:
Race, Law, and the Body Politic

The Rev. Dr. C.W. Dawson, Jr. – Facilitator

7 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesdays, Jan. 12 through Feb. 16, 2021

Once again, after the attempted insurrection at the Capitol Building in Washington, D.C., we are forced to ask ourselves the question: What does it mean to be the body politic, and how do the dynamics of race and law influence our response?

All meetings are at 7 p.m. via Zoom:
