Embracing God's Diversity

Title

Embracing God's Diversity

Description

Language and images are powerful ways to practice anti-racism, bring social change, and dismantle racism. Yet, we continue to use color labels such as "white people" "women of color" and "blacks.” This often perpetuates divisions and guilt rather than equity and justice for all. Personal stories are used to highlight the latest research about the role of faith in the development of a strong personal anti-racist identity grounded in Christ. Resources for creating God-honoring images and language are given in the references and presentation. This is a 45 slide presentation with the speaker's notes, and links to two videos used. The rich media presentation was followed by a choice of art, poetry, writing and photography activities. Some of these responses have now been included in the presentation, along with a link to the Facebook album of photographs. This was the Santa Barbara Presbyterian Women of the Presbytery Spring Gathering at Carpinteria Community Church, April 7, 2018.
