Spiritual Preparation, Workshop 7: Resistance
In "Building the World We Dream About," a Tapestry of Faith program
Read Handout 1, Three Strategies for Resistance and reflect on the three strategies in your own life, using these questions:
- Have you personally experienced these different ways of resisting racism and systems of privilege based on ethnic or racial identity?
- Do you tend toward one strategy over another? Why?
- How do you feel about the different approaches?
Often, we have very strong opinions about the "right" way to do things, and this can lead us to believe that our way is the only way or the correct way. As you prepare to lead the workshop, consider how you will respond when participants value one approach over another.
This work is made possible by the generosity of individual donors and congregations. Please consider making a donation today.
