Gigi Ross' series on the Lord's Prayer and the Great Migration continues Wednesday, April 8 and runs every Wednesday evening until April 22. The Great Migration is the period from about 1915-1970 when millions of blacks migrated from the south to the north. Gigi will be using The Great Migration as a modern day exodus story, a lens through which to see the Lord's Prayer as a template of the journey from slavery to freedom.

In addition, there will be practices to incorporate the Lord's Prayer in your daily life and to look at the places where each of us is moving from slavery into freedom. Participants will need to bring their own copy of The Warmth of Other Suns by Isabel Wilkerson.  For more details, contact Gigi Ross at 202-604-8896 or
