Dear FUMC Family,
I pray that each of you is walking this holy week with our Lord, Jesus Christ. By the Holy Spirit, we can notice God's heart and will for us individually and communally. As we shared, there are several worship opportunities in this Holy Week and Easter. Also, I attached resources that you can use for this Holy Week journey. Thank you all who sent me those resources.
Many blessings, Rev. Dong Hyun Choi
The book, 10 Days of the Easter Story, is written by Dr.Josh and Christi Straub. This book leads us to experience the feeling of Holy Week. Jason and James read the second story of the Easter Story. Today's feeling is anger.
HOLY WEEK & EASTER GATHERING

Dominating White Ways Workshop: Exploring the Commonplace Nature of White Supremacy and its Power to Co-opt Us All Saturday, April 15th, 2023 & Saturday, April 22nd, 2023 9:00 am -1:00 pm Virtual Event Registration is limited to 30 attendees This workshop is designed to help NYAC clergy, laity, Conference staff, and leadership understand the institutional nature of racism and the role organizations play in the equation. Oppression-and in particular, racism-is not only a matter of individual prejudice but a systemic, institutional problem of power that requires structural intervention to dismantle. This understanding is foundational to the training. White supremacy ideology is perhaps the greatest barrier to achieving socio-political, economic, cultural, and ecological sustainability in the USA. It is critically important that community and institutional leaders grasp the widespread constancy of white supremacy ideology; their conditioned investment in the ideology, and begin to imagine how to collaborate with others to dismantle it. This day-long workshop will offer participants tools and practices to assess & disrupt how the values and ways of being of white supremacy ideology operate their institutions.
