Lenten Book Study Announced
SAVE THE DATE as we join with Ebenezer Baptist Church to read Caste, Isabel Wilkerson’s bestseller that examines laws and practices that created what she describes as a bipolar, Black and white caste system in the United States. We will meet via Zoom on eight consecutive Wednesday evenings during and after Lent, from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m., beginning on February 24 and ending on April 14 (including the Wednesday of Holy Week). Each evening will begin with a brief segment of music, intercessory prayer, and homily. We will then move into a plenary presented by Ed Bacon or Ebenezer’s executive pastor, Rev. John Vaughn, followed by small discussion groups (“breakout rooms” in Zoom-speak) that will be randomly assigned each week. Registration will begin on January 21, with participants asked to read the assigned part each week and attend all eight sessions. Ebenezer Baptist, the home church of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., is located in downtown Atlanta. For more information, contact Sue McAvoy (chair; [email protected]) or Carolle Perkins, Marisa Sifontes, or Jon Tonge.
