Journey Toward Wholeness

We are on a Journey Toward Wholeness to heal the brokenness in our nation, in our congregation, and in our individual hearts. This journey is spiritual work that recognizes the damage caused by racism, such as:

  • The extermination of Native Americans
  • The enslavement of African peoples
  • The exclusion of Asians
  • The internment of Japanese Americans

Our nation’s history is mirrored in the hearts of both oppressors and the oppressed. The journey toward wholeness begins internally, so we are taking a fresh look at ourselves to identify our personal and institutional relationships to oppressive systems. We are learning skills to help dismantle racism in our congregation while we move into authentic multiracial, multicultural, and interfaith coalitions for spiritually-driven justice work.
We hope you will feel comfortable, safe, and welcome. You are invited to ask questions, offer feedback, and participate in any or all of our activities and programs.
