In "Building the World We Dream About," a Tapestry of Faith program
Light the chalice or invite a participant to light it while you read aloud these words by Juana Bordas, from the book, Salsa, Soul, and Spirit: Leadership for a Multicultural Age:
Organizations must be willing to reinvent themselves by altering their language, structure, and methods of operations. They must also change the guard, welcoming diverse leaders to the table to share their perspectives and experiences. This takes deep listening and open dialogue. New forms are created that integrate everyone's experiences, ideas, and unique contributions. Changing structures, norms, and values is the key to egalitarian pluralism and the foundation for multicultural organizations.
Sing together Hymn 305, "All the Colors." If the group includes Spanish speakers, sing the Spanish lyrics as well as the English.
Remind participants of the spirit of their covenant and invite participants to reaffirm their agreement to abide by it.
