SACRED CONVERSATIONS: A GUIDE FOR THE JOURNEY
SACRED CONVERSATIONS ON RACE, CULTURE AND RECONCILIATION
Sacred Conversations is a tool designed to help participants have gracious conversations around the complex and sensitive topic of race and racial reconciliation. These conversations will be enriched by gathering with people from diverse backgrounds, perspectives and experiences.
Taking into consideration that such conversations can be challenging, and often uncomfortable, the questions are designed so that participants can begin with the “basics” and move to deeper levels with each session. The sessions are also designed so that the novice, as well as the more experienced can enter the conversation in meaningful ways.
Through these conversations, knowledge will be gained, perspectives enlarged, understanding deepened, and hopefully, bridges built towards a lasting reconciliation. The guide offers ten sessions that are approximately 1 hour in length. Also guidelines are provided for creating safe spaces and for small group facilitation.
