For many years now the Synod of Lincoln Trails has gathered for an overnight fall assembly meeting to discuss together a book chosen by the assembly leadership team. This book tends to be a springboard into the planning for the upcoming year and helps the assembly shape and form together the partnerships the Synod hopes to grow and develop.
This year, in anticipation of some new opportunities developing between our synod, the Synod of Mid-America, and the Synod of Lakes and Prairies, the leadership team has chosen the Rev. Bruce Reyes-Chow’s book But I Don’t See You as Asian. We are also fortunate enough to be able to welcome him to our assembly as well. Because of this unique opportunity, we, as a leadership team wish to extend an invitation to the larger synod to join with us Friday night 7:00 -8:30 at Second Presbyterian Church in Indianapolis (770A N. Meridian St.) for a discussion with Bruce to help us create a space to identify and work to remove barriers of racism within our society.
We also recognize that it is physically impossible for many of you to make it to this event in person. Plans are underway to record this discussion as well and the synod will be happy to let you know when that will be available to view. There will also be refreshments and time to connect. We look forward to seeing you there!
Moderator, Synod of Lincoln Trails
