RLC UK Book Club: God is Not a White Man
June 19 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
About this Event
We are excited to welcome writer and broadcaster Chine McDonald for a special Red Letter Christians UK Book Club Discussion of her important new book, God is Not A White Man. The book will be released in May 2021 and is available for purchase here.
Our desire is to create an environment where we are not aiming to somehow ‘critique’ the book but to allow ourselves to hear from and engage with an important Black British voice and perspective. Last year, we held book club discussions of Reni Eddo-Lodge’s Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race and Ben Lindsay’s We Need to Talk About Race. We’ll hear from Chine about the book and also have a time of Q&A. As with our other Zoom Book Club gatherings, we will make time and space for dialogue in smaller breakout groups, too. Some of the questions we’ll be discussing are:
– What did you learn for the first time reading this?
– How did it challenge what you already know or thought you knew?
– Have you recognised a way you could change or adapt your behaviour in the light of this new information?
– What now?
The event will be hosted by RLC UK’s Naomi Bennett and Danielle Wilson. If you represent a church or community group and would like to have a dedicated ‘breakout’ room for your members, please get in touch and we’d be happy to facilitate that for you.
