Sacred Ground

From January 27 through April 7, the Diocese of Indianapolis Union of Black Episcopalians and the diocesan Racial Justice and Education Team will co-sponsor Sacred Ground, a dialogue series about race developed by the Episcopal Church.

Sacred Ground is rooted in faith and includes readings, documentary film and short videos. “Small groups are invited to walk through chapters of America’s history of race and racism, while weaving in threads of family story, economic class, and political and regional identity,” reads the Episcopal Church’s Sacred Ground webpage.

The diocesan-wide Sacred Ground discussion will meet Wednesdays from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. via Zoom for a total of 11 sessions.

The series will be facilitated by Mariann Scott and Deacon Cathy Scott. Please contact Deacon Cathy Scott with any questions.

The Sacred Ground program was launched last year by Becoming Beloved Community, the Episcopal Church’s long-term initiative on racial healing, reconciliation, and justice. Created by Katrina Browne, producer and director of the documentary “Traces of the Trade: A Story from the Deep North,” Sacred Ground is especially intended to help white people talk with each other about racism past and present, their own racial identity, and issues of class, region and ideology.
