Introduction, Workshop 18: Field Trip and Community Walk

In "Building the World We Dream About," a Tapestry of Faith program

It is far better to see the same place through 100 pairs of eyes, than 100 different places through the same pair of eyes. — Marcel Proust

This workshop engages participants directly with communities where the dominant racial/ethnic identity is people of African, Asian/Pacific Islander, Latina/o/Hispanic, Arabic/Middle Eastern, and/or Native descent or where a mixture of such persons is the dominant demographic. Participants add to what they have learned from previous workshops and have an opportunity to foster relationships across cultural divides by learning about the aspirations, issues, and concerns of people from racially or ethnically marginalized groups who live in the community around the congregation. Avoid making this a tourist or anthropology field trip. Engage panelists from Workshop 17 to help you identify communities, organizations, and people to meet and talk with.
