Now’s the time to apply for Fall 2018 Koinonia School

Koinonia is designed to equip people in three ways: to engage in transformative and self-reflective work around race; to engage in constructive dialogue regarding issues of race and justice; and to engage in the larger community to promote social justice.

This year’s program will consist of three daylong seminars, and two 48-hour retreats. Gatherings will include guest lecturers, small group discussion, community engagement, and personal reflection time. We will explore broad topics related to race and justice, such as history, diversity, shame, grief, lament, trauma, privilege, class, education, and media.

The KOINONIA School of Race and Justice intends to be a part of God’s ministry of racial reconciliation and is grounded in the Christian tradition. We believe everyone can engage in reducing racism by being instruments of justice in their own sphere of influence. You may sign up for the entire year at a cost reduction or register for each retreat independently. All are welcome.

The day-retreats are scheduled for Saturdays from 9-4 on November 17, January 19, and March 16.  The cost for each is $50, which includes lunch.  The weekend retreats will be held from Friday at 4 to Saturday at 4, at a cost of $110 each. Tuition is $325 to register for the entire year ($370 if done individually).

For further information, please contact Rev. Janie M. Walker or Rev. Joel Blunk.

To register for the September day-retreat or the entire year, please call the Richmond Hill office at (804) 783-7903 or email retreats@richmondhillva.org.
