12:00 p.m. Book Reading & Discussion w/Peter Jarrett-Schell

The Rev. Peter Jarrett-Schell, Rector of Calvary Episcopal Church on Capitol Hill, visited Grace Church in September to read and discuss his new book, Seeing my Skin: A Story of Wrestling with Whiteness. Rev. Peter returns to Grace this month for further conversation. As the white pastor of a historically Black congregation, the husband of a Black woman, and the father of a biracial son, he has wrestled with the question of Whiteness for many years. His book challenges us to personally consider the role of race in our own lives. The discussion, sponsored by Wade in the Water, Grace’s ministry for racial justice, begins at 12:00 p.m. in the Parish Hall on Sunday, November 17. Please RSVP at seeingmyskin.eventbrite.com no later than Friday, November 15.
