About the Event

On Monday, February 28th, we will meet in person for our monthly Dialogue Matters Book club meetings to increase our knowledge and understanding of challenging issues and center our minds to increase our compassion, humanity, and fellowship.

This month, we are reading  " Something in the Water: A 21st Century Civil Rights Odyssey" by Dr. Michael W. Waters. 

“A wake-up call to Americans in general and the church in particular.”–Publishers Weekly

Award-winning author, pastor, and civil rights leader Michael W. Waters takes us on an epic journey to the sacred places and spaces he visited as part of a cross-country trek in 2019-2020 through America’s racial history – and the haunting legacy it requires us to face today.

Through poems and prayers to sermons and eulogies, from rally cries to  political and historical commentary, Something in the Water illuminates not just our present struggles, but also the hope and belief in a better day to come. Ultimately, Waters challenges us to consider our role, collectively and individually, in the troubled waters of racism, and what we are willing to do to create a more just and equitable world for all.

For the sake of dialog and understanding, we may choose books genres to read from the topics related to interfaith, faith-inspired, social justice, history, a biography of important peacemakers, and contemporary issues. We  choose the following books to read at the meetings to read individually and discuss and share our reflections during our meetings.

We meet last Monday of each month between 6:00 pm—8:00 pm. We'll have the first meeting in person at the Dialogue Institute Dallas.

Rev. Debra Loudin-McCann and Ornela Kocyigit from the Dialogue Institute will be the moderator for the club and lead the discussions during the club meetings.
