Race still matters in America today. How can we raise children who go beyond the superficial notion of colorblindness to see and challenge the ways that privilege still shapes our lives? How can parents and educators prepare to seize the teachable moments that arise when we least expect them? Jasen Frelot, Kids and Race Exectutive Director, will lead this 2-hour workshop for the community.

Registration is required and a $15 registration fee will go to Kids and Race.

Register at kandrchicago.brownpapertickets.com.

Thanks to a grant from Thrivent Financial, HTLC members may have the fee waived. Contact Pastor Sevig (msevig@htchicago.org) to register using the scholarship.

Greetings from Pastor Mueller

Holy Trinity is unlike the churches most of us grew up in. Because it is fluid and ever-changing, the congregation has a remarkable spirit of openness and vitality. Yes, we value our Lutheran heritage and the ancient roots of our liturgy, yet we delight in a faith that is ever new and infused with a message for the needs and concerns of our contemporary world. As somebody recently put it: Our faith is two thousand years old, but our thinking is not.
