Tapestry of Faith: Building the World We Dream About: An Anti-racism Multicultural Program

Taking It Home: Growing and Healing Within Ethnic/Racial Groups

The purpose of monocultural community is two-fold: (1) to find identity and self-esteem as a group; and (2) to do homework together before encountering other cultural communities. — Eric H. F. Law, educator and author, in The Wolf Shall Dwell with the Lamb

At our next workshop, we will hold a worship service for reconciliation and healing. The worship service will offer you an opportunity to share insights you have gained and questions or challenges you identify or recognize. Take some time before the workshop to compose and practice reading aloud a short reflection (a page or less, double-spaced) about your experiences in the program so far. Questions/ideas to consider include:

  • What have I learned?
  • What do I need to learn more about?
  • What I need you to know about me is _________ .
  • I feel challenged/supported by _________ .

Bring your reflection with you to the next workshop.
