The Cross and the Lynching Tree Study Guide

The subject of race and race relations has captured our attention prompted by tragic events around the country. LeaderResources felt called to focus attention on this complicated and emotion-laden subject of race and to provide the Church with a resource to help us engage in a conversation about one of the most painful aspects of race – lynchings.

In collaboration with the Center for Reconciliation in the Diocese of Rhode Island, we are offering a Lenten Study Guide designed primarily for adults based on the book, “The Cross and the Lynching Tree,” by James H. Cone. In his book, Cone explores the symbolic connection between the cross and the trees used to lynch Blacks. This study guide is especially appropriate for Lent when we focus on Christ’s death on the cross. However, this study can be used at any time of the year and can help congregations seeking to reflect on the current racial issues.

Purchase the book, 'The Cross and the Lynching Tree,' on Amazon.

Just Eating: a free seven-session program on the relationship between our faith and our food by the Presbyterian Hunger Commission with a Leader's Guide and Participant Book. Thanks to our Presbyterian colleagues for sharing this resource.

"The curriculum explores how practicing our faith is foundational to meaningful and healthy living, for ourselves, for the earth and for others in the world. In particular, the program asks us to consider how eating—one of the most basic human activities—is an invitation to experience God and to journey with others in the world."
