Lift Every Voice

Lent 2021 - Lift Every Voice
A Conversation about Race and Reconciliation

We are very excited about the 2021 Lenten Wednesday series centered around conversations regarding race and reconciliation. This past January we invited 6 young adults of color (all recent graduates of Roseville Area High School) to come together and have roundtable discussions about their experiences of race, what reconciling work looks like, as well as how their faith informs them. What followed was honest, challenging and often heartbreaking conversation about their experiences within the community. 

We would love to have you consider joining us for discussions about these roundtable conversations every Monday during Lent at 7:00 pm (March 1, 8, 15, 22, 29). Click here to sign up.

Pastor Lauren was very moved by their discussions, and had the opportunity to meet with the group of 6 young adults for an entire day. Some of these young adults also chose to record spoken word pieces that they had crafted. A sample is posted below. These spoken word pieces will give you just a glimpse of the maturity these young adults have, as well as the challenges they face. These pieces will be shared in Sunday worship throughout the season of Lent. 

We certainly hope you will join us as these young adult voices are lifted up! You won’t want to miss out on the conversation that is born out of their experiences!

Every Monday evening we will gather with 1 or 2 of these young adults as “host”. They will answer questions, etc, for 15 minutes and then we will break out for 45 minutes of guided small group conversation (all on zoom). All participants will receive a small group hand out to help facilitate discussion.
