Raising White Kids: Oct. 18–Nov. 22 @ 8pm on Zoom
As we do the work of becoming anti-racist, parents and their children are having tough conversations. If you are a parent of white kids, you may wonder how to talk with them about racism and privilege in age-appropriate ways that emphasize allyship and compassion instead of guilt or shame about their whiteness.
.
What roles do we want to equip them to play in addressing racism when they encounter it? What strategies will help our children learn to function well in a diverse nation and affirm the beauty of God’s good gift of diversity?
.
All are invited to be a part of lively discussions around raising white kids. There is no fee to participate, so invite your friends and neighbors to join in! Contact Becky Boland, Hennepin’s Certified Lay Minister, with questions: 
bolandbecky@gmail.com

Winter Coat Drive
October 19–November 9
Winter is coming! Our neighbors who are experiencing homelessness, or have limited income to purchase adequate winter wear, are already looking warm clothing. Despite the frigid weather, they will have to walk an average 13 miles seeking to obtain services and they will have to wait at bus stops. Many will attempt to brave the elements rather than seek shelter.
.
We can make winter a bit more tolerable by donating coats and winterwear to the Dignity Center’s annual coat drive. From Oct 19 to Nov 9, purchase new donatable items, or sort through the coats in the closet. That one that you haven’t worn in years, that one that doesn’t fit as nicely anymore, that one that belonged to a loved one who is not around anymore–give them all to the Dignity Center. We will make sure that the poor and the marginalized receive your warm blessing–without charge!
.
Donations can be dropped off at the Dignity Center, or at Hennepin Avenue United Methodist Church. Please email Dignity@haumc,org to arrange a drop off day and time. All donations are welcome, but because of our population, lots of big male sizes are especially needed.
.
Thank you for your support!
