A Vision for Diversity | Jan. 15, 2017

Getting Started

  • In regards to racial reconciliation, what are some of your fears and anxieties?
  • What are some things that you think some people find appealing about segregation?

Community Discussion

  • In what ways are we as a community prone to being homogenous? How are we creating space for racial reconciliation to happen within our community?
  • As we learned, some people seek a false sense of reconciliation through empty activism, and tokenism. What are some things we do to create a false sense of racial reconciliation?
  • What are some practical ways we can develop relationships, work for peace, and fight for unity in working towards racial reconciliation?

Further Discussion

Discipleship

  • In what ways do you avoid seeking racial reconciliation? What do you think causes you to do so?
  • How have you been seeking a false sense of reconciliation through empty activism and/or tokenism?
  • What are some practical ways you can develop relationships, work for peace, and fight for unity in working towards racial reconciliation?

Family

  • How have you experienced racism within your family or extended family? How has this affected the way your family approaches relationships with people that are different than you?
  • We were challenged to have a reconciled dining room table. As a family, commit to having a family that is culturally different than yours over for dinner.
