In "Exploring Our Values Through Poetry," a Tapestry of Faith program
Identity would seem to be the garment with which one covers the nakedness of the self, in which case, it is best that the garment be loose, a little like the robes of the desert, through which one's nakedness can always be felt, and, sometimes, discerned.
— James Arthur Baldwin
DURING TODAY'S WORKSHOP...
We looked at how we are all alike and different, inside and out, by hearing two poems, learning about the diverse groups to which we belong, and creating a self-portrait.
Think back to a time when you discovered you were different from a loved one. Remember what that felt like. It might have brought you closer together or caused you to drift apart. Perhaps it did not change your relationship at all. What are some of the tools you have learned to use in order to co-exist with people who are different from you?
