First Parish in Concord and First Parish in Lexington are collaborating on an experiential curriculum, Beloved Conversations.
- 1.5 day retreat on February 2nd and 3rd.
- Eight biweekly facilitated discussions in small groups promote new patterns of thought and behavior.
Developed by the Fahs Collaborative at Meadville Lombard UU Theological School, this highly acclaimed program begins with a thought-provoking 1.5 day retreat facilitated by trained Fahs Collaborative staff, which will take place on February 2nd and 3rd.
Small groups of 8-10 members from both congregations will then meet together for eight biweekly facilitated discussions to promote new patterns of thought and behavior that connect both the sources of inspiration as well as the challenges of race/ethnicity. Beloved Conversations will provide a space to re-form/fuse the brokenness of racism into new patterns of thought and behavior ushering in social and spiritual healing.
