In "Building the World We Dream About," a Tapestry of Faith program
We need to approach racism as it exists in our lives today, and not as an exercise in studying history. We need to share our experiences and viewpoints, and listen with open hearts and minds to each other, especially when we disagree. We need to avoid thinking that we have the right answer, the only correct perspective, or that there is any. — Ruth Alatorre, in Bringing Gifts, a publication of the Latino/a Unitarian Universalist Networking Alliance (LUUNA)
Before the next workshop, speak to two people in your congregation to learn about how and why they joined your faith community. If possible, talk to people who identify as People of Color or from other ethnic or culturally marginalized identity groups to learn about their decision to be a part of your community. Reflect on how their stories align with this notion of marginality and mattering.
