As Christians in the Pittsburgh Diocese, we have been considering our World and Life View journey through the Fifth Friday Conversation about Race. We are asking ourselves, “What and how ought we do to be truly One in Christ?” Within the Bible we are called “…love your neighbor as yourself.” Everyone regardless of skin color are our neighbors. The sin of counting someone as less than ourselves because of their ethnic or cultural heritage is rampant not just in the U.S. but around the world.
This month we will walk in the shoes from another perspective in A Passage to India by E. M. Forster Friday April 30, from 7:00-8:30 pm. What does this sin look like outside our country? Set in the 1920’s during the struggle for independence in India during the days of the British Raj we encounter the reality of sin perpetrated by one group the British rulers upon their Colonial counterparts the people of India.
Fifth Friday Book Conversations About Race occur quarterly on the Fifth Friday of the month. This month the Conversation will be led by Rev. Todd Murden, Assistant Rector at St. Stephen’s Sewickley. All members of the diocese are welcome. Please inform and invite your parishioners to attend. A Passage to India, by E. M. Forster can be purchased wherever you get your books in multiple formats, including audio book. As these Conversations are via Zoom, everyone who wants to attend needs to RSVP to receive the link. The session will also be recorded. Details about A Passage to India are included. RSVP online today.
