The ELCA's United Lutheran Seminary has their 2022 courses listed and one of them is called "Let’s Talk: Racial Reckoning in Ministry Contexts."
In the description it is described as "A course for church leaders either engaged or preparing to engage in conversations about race in America within their ministry context. How do we walk with people from white fragility to white humility? How can we help folks understand that Critical Race Theory and The 1619 Project are the truth that sets us free from fear and encourages us to see the world around us with Christocentric and inclusive focus? Colleagues will discuss readings and develop practical ways to begin this challenging journey."
