One of the ways we commit to seeking racial justice as part of our faith journey is by participating in antiracism study groups. Over 80 St. Paul’s individuals are currently engaged in these studies. We also have studies and activities available specifically for kids and youth. Learn more and join us!
5th Sunday Forums
These forums provide an opportunity to learn about and engage in a variety of justice-related issues in our community. In 2021 we’ll be using our 5th Sunday Forums as a chance to continue our discipleship pathway and SEEK Justice! In January, Marcus Winn of More2 (Metro Organization for Racial and Economic Equity) hosted a webinar presentation followed by a Q&A forum. Stay tuned for what’s next!
We meet regularly with our friends from the Dialogue Institute, which aims to “promote mutual understanding, respect, and cooperation among people of diverse faiths and cultures.” Our gatherings have included women’s brunches and Ramadan fast-breaking dinners.

One of the ways we seek justice for people of all backgrounds is through interfaith panel discussions, where leaders from all faiths come together to better understand one another and work toward a more peaceful world. Our most recent panels were:
- People of Faith in the US Today
- Women in World Religions
We seek justice through sermon series like, “Finding Our Place: Locating Change in KC, the Bible, and Our Own Hearts.” This series helped us learn how injustice has been part of our local history, and how vitally important it is to recognize the ways in which it is still being played out. Watch Pastor Lora’s intro to the series and access the rest of the videos at the links below.
