RACIAL RIGHTEOUSNESS READING GROUP

Members of DCC have been in discussion about the topic of racial righteousness and the American church's role in racism. What does the Bible say about this? What does our nation's history teach us? What are we called to do as Christians? As part of this ongoing discussion DCC created a Racial Righteousness reading and discussion group that has allowed us to delve into these questions. Click on the book titles below for a synopsis and review of each book. Interested in joining the group? It is open to all. Call the church office for details at 382-1342.

BOOK SYNOPSIS & REVIEWS BY AMANDA PETERSON

The Legend of the Candy Cane ~ Lori Walburg

One dark November night a stranger rides into a small prairie town. Who is he? Why has he come? The townspeople wish he were a doctor, a dressmaker, or a trader. But the children have the greatest wish of all, a deep, quiet, secret wish. Then a young girl named Lucy befriends the newcomer. When he reveals his identity and shares with her the legend of the candy cane, she discovers fulfillment of her wishes and the answer to her town’s dreams. Now will she share what she has learned? Warm, lavish illustrations by James Bernardin bring to life a timeless tale of Lori Walburg, a story that will help families celebrate the mystery and miracle of Christmas -for many Christmases to come.
