In "Building Bridges," a Tapestry of Faith program
Participants discover the range of Christian churches that service unique ethnic and racial populations.
Remind youth that in the story of Pentecost, disciples of Jesus started speaking languages they never knew and, in this way, were able to spread the news of Jesus' life, death, and resurrection to people from lands far and wide.
Read the workshop quote. Make sure the group knows that Channing was an influential Unitarian minister who lived from 1780-1842. If the Welcoming and Entering activity was done, ask how the range of Bible translations has to do with Channing's quote?
Distribute the material you gathered that demonstrates the ranges of church services in your community. In particular, look for churches that hold services in different languages (Korean, Chinese, Spanish are just a few you might see represented.) or to congregations comprised mostly of people from one ethnic group (Catholic churches in black neighborhoods, African Methodist Episcopal churches or Greek Orthodox churches are examples.)
