Winter adult religious education – Race, Law, and the Body Politic

Rev. Dr. C.W. Dawson, Jr.

With the Rev. Dr. C.W. Dawson, Jr., Facilitator

Six-session seminar – 7 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesdays, Jan. 12 through Feb. 16

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? This six-week adult religious education series will center on the dynamics of race and law and what it means to be “we the people.” Please join us for what promises to be an exciting exchange of ideas. 

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