Public unrest over public health and policing has brought the topic of privilege, and lack of privilege, to the forefront in American society. Statistics seem to show that less-privileged persons are more likely to suffer both from COVID-19 and from police misconduct.
But privilege is not just a social issue. For Christians it is also a faith issue. This brief course offers a non-judgmental setting in which participants begin to assess their own privilege in the light of their faith.
No attempt will be made to “fix” participants, and shaming will be forbidden. The course is meant as a tool and not as a scold.
This course is eligible for 0.5 CEU.
