'White Privilege: Let's Talk,' an adult education curriculum designed to invite members to engage in safe, meaningful, substantive and bold conversations on race, is written by five authors from different perspectives and walks of life. The Rev. John C. Dorhauer, one of the authors, has a doctoral degree in White Privilege, and previously taught a course on the subject at Eden Theological Seminary. He promised to create this curriculum as one of his first initiatives as general minister and president, and noted that the "United Church of Christ, in its long history, has preached the hard truths about social justice to a world often unwilling and unready to hear those truths. When we preach the gospel faithfully, we often anger and disrupt the comfort people have grown accustomed to living with."   Read more here.
