Waking Up White: Beginning on September 10, the Adult Ed Committee has planned four monthly Sunday lunches after 11:00 worship to discuss Debbie Irving’s book, Waking Up White, which the Co-Moderators of the Presbyterian Church (USA) have commended to the whole denomination. The committee is arranging for facilitated discussion in small groups in order to maximize personal expression.
