Issues Surrounding Race in our Time: Neighborhood Walks and Discussions in October
You are invited to join in a community learning opportunity on topics around race at Chapel of the Cross which will be offered in two parts.  We will begin with part one: a sound walk of the Northside Neighborhood, just a few minutes away from the church.  Northside began as a labor settlement and is now a Conservation District, and The Marion Cheek Jackson Center created a sound walk of community voices telling stories about the neighborhood’s history.  There will be three opportunities to walk with a group from the church: Fri, Oct. 13th at 1pm, Sun, Oct. 15th and 3pm and Sat, Oct 21st at 10am.  The walk will take a little over an hour’s time and will be followed by a feedback session in the parking lot at the Jackson Center. Each walk is limited to 20 participants, so please register in advance for the date of your choice on the calendar on the COTC website.  You may also click on the link on their website and complete the walk at a time convenient to you.

Part two will include further discussion concerning issues around race.  These discussions will be held from 6:30-7:30 over three Wednesday evenings October 25th – November 8th in the Overlook Room.  We will focus our topics of conversation around awareness, engagement, and Christian action for those who interested in learning how to live out God’s call in the world around us.  You may choose to join in both the walk and the discussion, or just the walk OR the discussion.  If you have any questions about these opportunities, please contact Paige Hanks, Seminary Intern at hankspaige@gmail.com or at the church office.
