|A four-part virtual formation series beginning Thursday, December 2 at 7:00pm focused on issues of racial reconciliation and the calling of the Church and our diocese to strive for justice and peace among all people. This series was born of the work and study of the diocesan Racial Justice and Reconciliation Task Force and diocesan staff. We have worked together to create a series of guided interviews with authors and speakers from across the Church that will prompt group discussions and, hopefully, ministry in our congregations and action in our communities.|

Dr. Tony Lewis, retired professor of New Testament and Greek at Virginia Theological Seminary and associate priest at St. Paul’s K Street, Washington, DC. We’ll be looking at the shortest of Paul’s authentic letters — Philemon — as a lens for a wonderful conversation on what we can learn from scripture about social responsibility, our relationships in Christ, and as always, our common life.
