HINDSIGHT IS 2020: SANKOFA 2021 ONLINE Winter RETREAT
A Christian perspective on the prominent issues of the year
The year 2020 was unlike any other. So much suffering took place that took our collective breath away, many losing their lives altogether in various ways, unnecessarily. Think of it; a pandemic that has taken almost 400,000 lives in America alone, the political resurgence of nationalism, police brutality fueled by white supremacy, racism and classicism, in addition to the false prophecies and existential crisis of the church. We believe that there are valuable lessons to be learned from the suffering we've endured in 2020, and we invite you to reflect with us, to the end that we might become better citizens of the Kingdom of God. There is much at stake! Please join us in this year's Retreat; Hindsight is 2020.
