Matthew 25:31–46 calls all of us to actively engage in the world around us, so our faith comes alive and we wake up to new possibilities.
For the month of July, the congregation of Riviera Presbyterian Church will undertake the 21-Day Racial Justice Challenge, leading to the discussion of the documentary ‘The 13th’ on Wednesday, July 22 at 6:30 pm.
The challenge invites us to do something every day to raise awareness about the perniciousness of racism and encourage action in response to that awareness. The PC(USA) has joined several nonprofits, organizations and school systems in adapting the challenge for our use.
Starting today (July 1) and for the next 20 days instead of a meditation at 8:00am you will be receiving a challenge to raise your awareness of racism.
Email the church office firstname.lastname@example.org to start receiving this email.
