How do we care for our city in a way that encounters the depth of its story and its present realities? How do we seek long-term transformation in our community that begins with transformation in ourselves? Where is God in the story, especially in the noise of religious language used to both cause and liberate from oppression? In this workshop, Keith Daniel and Reynolds Chapman of DurhamCares and Valerie Helbert of the Duke Center for Reconciliation will share about their partnership on the Durham Pilgrimage of Pain and Hope. They will engage pressing questions about white supremacy, historical sites and markers, and narratives of our country's and city's history. They will show how the pilgrimage offers a form of engagement that takes the long view through careful listening, reflection, and a robust sense of place. This is a great opportunity for both Pilgrimage alumni and people who have not participated in the Pilgrimage Weekend to continue their pilgrim journey of learning how Durham's story, their own stories, and God's story connect. Breakfast will be provided!
