Sophia is at 6pm on zoom.
Topic is: what is Anti-Racism?
Led by Rev Swee-Ann Koh
What does it mean to be an anti-racist? How is that different from not being racist? Do you actually know what being racist means? Rev Swee-Ann Koh has been educating and guiding the Uniting Church through these issues for many years and will lead our discussion at Sophia on Sunday 2 August at 6pm.

A monthly evening service on the 1st Sunday at 6pm.
The service will be based around an ethical issue including the exploration of spiritual and faith responses. Following a time of gathered prayer, an ethical issue is introduced, information shared and then discussion takes place in table groups using some questions as a guide. The time together will end with the sharing of communion and prayer.
The name ‘Sophia’ is taken from the First Testament and speaks of the Wisdom literature, the Holy Spirit, and a sense of what is just – all of which nurture the spiritual faith life.
This is an intergenerational service suitable for young adults although some ethical issues might not be as appropriate as others for some young people – warnings will be provided if that’s the case.
