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

Handout 1: Reflection Questions

Use these questions to help you reflect on your experiences, insights, and observations following the panel presentation and/or the community walk.

  • What energizes you most about what you heard or experienced?
  • How do you think the broader community "sees" you?
  • What kind of relationship do you have with that community?
  • How do you experience trust and good faith with that community?
  • How does the congregation's space "welcome" people from diverse racial and ethnic groups, especially those who may be considered "other" in your congregation?
  • What is your biggest concern about what you learned?
  • Where did/do you feel most challenged?
  • What surprises you most?
  • What was more difficult to hear, see, or experience than you expected?
  • How did hearing and seeing the voices and neighborhoods of non-congregants complicate your understanding of what it will mean to be a multiracial/multicultural congregation?
