GRACISM: The Art of Inclusion
NEW CBLI WORKSHOP!
JULY 28-29, 31 and AUGUST 1-2 (no class Wed., July 30)
Gracism is defined as “positively extending favor to other people in spite of or sometimes because of color, class or culture.” Whether you are in a multicultural or mono-cultural corps community, this workshop based upon the book Gracism: The Art of Inclusion will provide you with the knowledge and the practical skills needed to build bridges across cultural differences with love and respect.
Looking through the lens of 1 Corinthians 12, this workshop will lay the foundation for ‘Gracism’ and explore the seven sayings of a Gracist: I will lift you up, I will cover you, I will share with you, I will honor you, I will stand with you, I will consider you, I will celebrate with you. Gracism is ‘radical inclusion’ for the marginalized and for the excluded.
Gracism: The Art of Inclusion will provide a fresh perspective on how Christians can do life together across the barriers that divide and have a positive impact upon corps, community, and family ministries.
This workshop will be led July 28-29, 31 and August 1-2 by Captains Enrique & Nancy Azuaje, Alfredo Martinez, and Karen Young of the Territorial Multicultural Ministries Department. There is no class on Wed., July 31. Sign up at CBLI registration!
