Mark your calendars now for Saturday, March 23 as All Saints Church hosts an afternoon with the Reverend Dr. Kelly Brown Douglas.
Forty years ago, white Christians made up 80 percent of Americans. Now white Christians are a minority. Soon, white people will be too. The Rev. Dr. Kelly Brown Douglas — theologian, scholar and prophet — will confront head on the realities of demographic shifts and white Christian America with questions like:
How did we get where we are?
Does the Trump administration represent White America’s last dying breath?
How do we respond to the realities of evil?
What are the decision points for this moment in history?
What does it mean to give up Whiteness?
Why are we finding all this so difficult to face?
1:00 – 4:30 p.m. in the All Saints Forum. Admission is free – a free-will offering of $20 will be taken for the Freedom School at Black Lives Matter Pasadena – and childcare will be provided on request.
The Reverend Dr. Kelly Brown Douglas is the inaugural Dean of Episcopal Divinity School at Union Theological Seminary. Since 2017, she has served as the Canon Theologian at the Washington National Cathedral and continues in that role today. A leading voice in the development of a womanist theology, Dr. Douglas is widely published in national and international journals and other publications. A native of Dayton, Ohio, Dr. Douglas was ordained at St. Margaret’s Episcopal Church in 1985 — the first black woman to be ordained an Episcopal priest in the Southern Ohio Diocese, and amongst the first ten to be ordained nationwide.
