JustFaith Winter 2020 Program
Faith & Racial Equity:  Exploring Power and Privilege

Join our winter session as we focus on economic systems, public policies, cultural norms, and hidden biases that empower some and oppress others. Through books (White Fragility and I'm Still Here), videos, immersion experiences and conversations, we will come away with action steps to work toward racial equity in our communities.  Learn more about this curriculum here.

What is JustFaith? 

 "Meeting people where they are and walking with them toward Christ."

"Just like the song, Open My Eyes Lord, this program helped me see God's face in places I had never known before.

JustFaith is deisgned for people who want a deeper faith, a greater sense of purpose and a practical understanding of how to make a difference in the world.  JustFaith is an intensive, small-group process for faithful Christians looking to deepen their commitment to care for vulnerable people and our planet.  Through prayer, study, dialogue, and immersions, participants form community as they explore critical realities and their implications to their lives and their faith.  The group will employ books, videos, guest speakers, discussion, prayer, retreats and hands-on experiences.  Participants also form a community and share a journey of faith and compassion that is life-giving.  Visit the JustFaith website for more.

What is Just Faith? 

  • A weekly gathering of people who learn, discuss, experience, pray about, and participate in the important social issues of our time.
  • A platform to reflect on the world alongside people with different backgrounds and perspectives.
  • A variety of experiences...one week you may read about poverty in America and have a lively discussion. The next week, you might be talking with someone experiencing homelessness in Charlotte or serving lunch at the Men's Shelter. 
  • Another week you might go to a halfway house for women at the end of their prison sentences and talk to them about the challenges of integrating back into society. The next week you may be taking your car to a certain auto detailing shop because you learned that the owner goes out of his way to provide employment opportunities to these women as they try to create a new life for themselves.
