Signposts is a covenant discipleship opportunity for lay and clergy to support one another while exploring God’s dream for an antiracist, anti-oppressive world. Through personal reflection on the scriptures and exploration of the themes of white supremacy, racism, and oppression, we will work to recognize and deconstruct their power in our own lives. Two books by Jemar Tisby are included in the curriculum: The Color of Compromise and How to Fight Racism.
There are two Signposts Groups that are forming:
1) Monday Nights, 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. is a 20-week cohort that meets weekly via Zoom. This group meets for 10 weeks, breaks for six to eight weeks, and resumes the second 10 weeks in the fall.
2) A second group will meet monthly in-person on Mondays, 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. OR Thursdays 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and weekly with a covenant partner for Christian conversation on the readings for that week. The group will decide on which meeting day works best.
Signposts is partnered with the Center for Faith and Imagination at Memphis Theological Seminary and the TWKUMC Conference through the conference’s Anti-Racism Coalition.
Please consider participating and/or sharing this invitation with someone else. Participants do not have to be members of the UMC. We are planning an interest meeting for Monday, April 18, at 6:30 p.m. To signup for the interest meeting click here:
