- The next two books in our discussion series will be:
- Threading My Prayer Rug: One Woman’s Journey from Pakistani Muslim to American Muslim, by Sabeeha Rehman (Arcade Publishing, 2016, available in hardcover or for e-readers) – first discussion post on Wednesday, February 1st.
- An Introduction to Womanist Biblical Interpretation, by Nyasha Junior (Westminster John Knox Press, 2015, available in paperback or for e-readers) – discussion beginning mid-March.
- We will conclude our discussion of Waking Up White next week with a video chat discussion of the book. Mark your calendar for Wednesday, January 18, at 2 p.m. Eastern time, and email Martha at firstname.lastname@example.org to ask for a link to the Zoom meeting.
- We welcome submissions to be published in this Wednesday slot in the coming months on the subject of anti-racism work. We will consider opinion pieces, personal narratives, and stories about effective anti-racism work being done in or by pastors and/or churches. Published pieces should be in the 600-800 word range. Please email Martha your query.
- Do you have a book to suggest for our series? A website or article you think we ought to be highlighting? An anti-racism event we could promote? Again, please email Martha at email@example.com; your input is much appreciated.

About the RevGals Anti-Racism Project: As a majority white organization incorporated in the United States, the leaders of RevGalBlogPals feel called to confront systemic racism in the U.S. As a global ministry, we feel called to oppose minority oppression and racial injustice in all nations. We hope this book discussion will be a step toward awareness and away from unconscious centering of whiteness.
