A word from Pastor Kally Elliott:

I want to invite you to join me and the rest of the staff at First Presbyterian Church, Bend in taking a 28 day challenge in which we will Lament, Listen, Learn, Look, and Love. We will lament how we have been complacent and complicit in racial injustice. We will listen to the voices of Black people, learning from those voices as they speak to us in articles, books, quizzes, and podcasts. We will look at how racism infects our own minds, our own communities, even our church. And we will love.  We will put what we are learning into loving action. There will be regular opportunities to come together (via Zoom) to have conversation around what we are learning, daily journal prompts for individual reflection, as well as a closed Facebook group where we can interact with one another.

My hope and my prayer is that at the end of 28 days we will have a better idea of how to stand in solidarity with the Black community, how to speak up, how to love well, and how to get in trouble, good trouble, necessary trouble.

Please sign up for this 28 day challenge! I look forward to making this journey with you.
