Learn-a-thon 2022

Posted on

At Woodland, we are committed to learning to love together. We’re also passionate about proclaiming God’s heart for racial healing and justice. So, to observe MLK Day, we’re bringing back our Learn-a-thon: Race and Peace 2022! We have created resource lists of suggested books, podcasts, videos, conversation questions and more for you to learn about race, justice, peacemaking and the civil rights movement.

As a church body, our goal is to reach a total of 1000 hours of learning by the end of February. For every hour we complete, a generous donor will make a contribution to the One Fund, which is dedicated to supporting the work of local African American churches and ministries who, due to historic inequities, are disproportionately affected by some of the crises here in the Twin Cities in recent times.

The organizers of the fund remind us that “Many pastors and leaders serving in their communities are bi-vocational. Many have lost their jobs and funding for essential broader community programming.” Our hope is to raise $25,000 to donate to their cause.

Our recommended resource list is available here, but you can find other ways to learn about racial justice if you’d like! And as you complete activities, just log your time here.

Together, we can put our time to work for the Kingdom – we hope you join us!

"I am a podrishioner that just wanted to say thanks for sharing Woodland Hills through podcasts and videos. This is my place to get a spiritual refill, and it’s where I get most of my teaching from. Since I've starting following you four years ago, my view on God, myself and other people has radically been changed. Thanks so much, and keep sharing the Kingdom!"

– Knut-Inge, from Norway
