Public Witness Bible Study, Feb 1 and 2 – As we continue to learn from African American history, it is important to ask questions of what must be done to repair harms of the past, cultivate healing in the present, and em-brace transformation for our future. In Bible Study, we will explore Biblical themes of reparations, healing and transformation.

Public Witness Forum, Feb 6 – In February we will be joined by Rev. Naw San KD, pastor of the San Francisco Kachin Baptist Church. Naw San and members of his congregation will provide us with an update on what is happening in Burma and how we can support the Burmese community both in Myanmar as well as in the Bay Area. As we honor the heritage of African Americans overcoming brutal oppression by the U.S. government, we acknowledge the ways so many contin-ue to endure government oppression.
