Over the summer, we have been reading and discussing books such as “Native Identity, Belonging and Rediscovering God” by Katilin Curtice (Brazos Press), “Waking Up White and Finding Myself in the Story of Race” by Debby Irving (Elephant Room Press),  and “White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism” by Robin DiAngelo (Beacon Press).  The discussion continues and we encourage you to be part of a solution.
