JARS – The Jesuit Antiracism Sodality​

March 16, 2024 - A Descendant's Story: Dr. Lynn Locklear Nehemiah

Reflection Questions:

  • What interior movements or moments did you notice as Lynn shared her account? Did you experience a sense of consolation or desolation, and if so, what might God be inviting you into as a result?
  • If you are a Jesuit:
    • Do you feel a sense of connection or responsibility for what happened at the 1838 sale?
  • We are all descendants of Christ. How do you understand your identity in Christ? In light of this, and as you consider your unique gifts and context, what is your role in this work? In the healing process moving forward? 
  • What do you need in order to have the most freedom to carry out this work of truth and healing?
