QuakerSpeak video: Dreaming of Wholeness: Quakers and the Future of Racial Healing Articles from Tapestry of Faith, a curriculum of the Unitarian Universalists Association: Not Somewhere Else, But Here by Rev. Dr. Rebecca Ann Parker To recover and become an inhabitant of one's own life and one's own society, a different theology is needed. A new theology must begin here, a theology that assists in an internal healing of the fragmented self, that supports a new engagement with the realities of one's society, and that sanctions a remedial education into the actual history and present realities of one's country. Theology must direct us, like Eve, to taste the fruit of knowledge and gladly bear the cost of moving beyond the confines of the garden. InstructionsInstructions: Share the video and/or read one or more articles with the participants. Have a discussion around these queries: In the QuakerSpeak video above, Sterling Duns notes that, "As an Afro-futurist, I spend time thinking about the future, and really spending some deep time imagining what it looks like for us all to be free. I think Quaker communities can spend that time and energy doing that." Take a moment to imagine us all being free. What does that future look like? What is Spirit calling you to do in your individual life to create that reality? How are you called to dismantle white supremacy and work toward justice?
