Event Details
An event from the grant initiative Baptized for Life/Vida En Abundancia and the department of Lifelong Learning at Virginia Theological Seminary.
The impact of a dual pandemic has Black and Latino congregations battling COVID-19 and white supremacy in unique ways for their survival.
BFL/VEA catechists, Canon Myra B. Garnes and The Rev. Yoimel González Hernández, will share from their experience of walking with Black and Latino congregations engaged in a deep dive into forming lives of meaning and purpose. The unique challenges congregations of color in a predominately white denomination are facing may prevent them from meeting earlier plans for mission. However, a focused ministry on reclaiming baptismal identity and living out God’s call for their lives has shifted the ways that parishioners and community members are being served. Myra and Yoimel will discuss essential workers, health implications, racism and invisibility within dioceses, and rising to lead both in the parish and community.
3:00-4:00 p.m.
