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.
