Sacred Ground is a film- and readings-based dialogue series on race, grounded in faith. The series invites groups to walk through chapters of America’s history of race and racism, while weaving in threads of family story, economic class, and political and regional identity.

Sacred Ground is a 10-part series, built around a powerful online curriculum of documentary films and readings that focus on Indigenous, Black, Latino, and Asian/Pacific American histories as they intersect with European American histories. We plan to offer each part every 4-6 weeks. Some homework is required, but you’ll have a month to work and reflect between sessions.

Sacred Ground is part of Becoming Beloved Community, The Episcopal Church’s long-term commitment to racial healing, reconciliation, and justice in our personal lives, our ministries, and our society. This series is open to all, and especially designed to help white people talk with other white people. Participants are invited to peel away the layers that have contributed to the challenges and divides of the present day—all while grounded in our call to faith, hope and love.
