This five-week study focuses on resources that educate and deepen cultural competency regarding racial equity, our indigenous neighbors, and the LGBTQIA+ community. Together we will navigate media and text sources and engage in weekly group discussion as we seek greater awareness and deeper understanding of these groups. The material for each week invites dialogue surrounding historical perspectives, contemporary realities, and implications for future action and advocacy. As an extension of the 2023 Lenten Kaleidoscope Challenge, each week of the study is grounded in our Christian faith and Lutheran tradition.
