Activity time: 15 minutes

Materials for Activity

Preparation for Activity

  • Copy Handout 1, Path toward a Multiracial, Multicultural Congregation for all participants.

Description of Activity

Distribute the handout. Invite comments, observations, questions, and discussion. As you wrap up the discussion, weave in the following concluding points:

  • This is the process this workshop group has undertaken as a learning community.
  • We must engage the congregation in developing new ways of being with each other that allow these practices to take root and flourish.
  • The next step in our workshop process is to develop consciousness and skills to help us engage and support the congregation, so it can move toward becoming a multiracial, multicultural congregation and sustain that motion over time.
