Spiritual Preparation, Workshop 7: Discerning Race/Discerning Power

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

Reflect on your own life experiences:

  • When and how did you learn about race?
  • If you are a person marginalized by race or ethnicity, when and how did you learn what it means to be a Person of Color or someone marginalized by race or ethnicity? What early messages did you receive?
  • If you are a White person, when and how did you learn what it means to be White? What early messages did you receive?

Let your own early experiences and the messages you received about race lead you to a place of compassion for participants as they grapple with the idea that good people with good intentions are often participants in a racist system.
