An Invitation to Sacred Ground from Father David:

Sacred ground is dangerous ground. Jesus called us to sacred ground by feeding the hungry, healing the sick, casting out evil, and showing us the love of God. They hung Jesus on a cross. There is no doubt that the work of seeking sacred ground can create conflict and unwelcome change. Sacred ground is hard to find, but it is the work that Jesus calls us to do.

The Sacred Ground program produced by our own Episcopal Church offers a way to do this difficult but important work. In the context of safe, respectful small groups, we will look at the history of racism in our church and our country using films and readings. The program is designed to offer a safe space to be heard, to learn, and to grow as we seek that sacred ground where we can truly respect the dignity of every human being.

Sacred Ground is a part of the Episcopal Church’s Becoming Beloved Community initiative which expresses the long term commitment to racial healing, reconciliation, and justice.
