Word To Your Mother Talks About Privilege

W2YM is a group of busy, busy moms who gather to discuss secular and religious books throughout the year. Our next read is Amy Julia Becker’s White Picket Fences: Turning Towards Love in a World Divided by Privilege, which we’ll discuss the evening of Tuesday, June 16. The book is available at cathedralbookstore.org. Becker writes: “I have been given much that I do not deserve, and my very real social privilege has cut me off from others as much as it has also made my life comfortable. But social privilege is not the end of my story. The real privilege of my life has come in learning what it means to love others, that love involves suffering and sacrifice and sleepless nights and tears and heartache and great gifts.” If you’re wondering how to engage in an honest and imperfect conversation about race, mindful of our responsibility as parents to teach our children a better way, contact Canon Lauren Holder, lholder@cathedralATL.org.
