This Saturday, February 18, I will be in Sarasota, Florida attending the Hawkins Road Festival. The festival sponsor, Suncoast Community Church, has invited me to lead two workshops based on my book, Native Americans, the Mainline Church, and the Quest for Interracial Justice. My thanks to this progressive faith community for hosting this event and for inviting me to be a participant. I also want to thank Brad Lyons and the folk at Chalice Press for all their help and support.
Can your faith community host an event like the Hawkins Road Festival? Perhaps you can unite with others in your area and co-sponsor such an event. Now is the time for faith communities to pull together and use our resources and lend our voices to the struggle to create a more just and peaceful interracial and multicultural society.
