RCCI offers a series of introductory workshops and can also design workshops to meet the needs of your community.
All of RCCI’s introductory workshops are co-facilitated by a multi-racial team and held from 10:00am - noon at EGC, located at 2 San Juan St. in Boston.
Introductory workshops include…
Race & the Gospel: A Theological Framework for Race & Reconciliation - While racial reconciliation is often seen as a “liberal” or “political issue,” God’s Word reveals that, first and foremost, it is biblical issue. Join us to learn more about what God’s word says about racial reconciliation, how it fits into the biblical metanarrative of sin and redemption, and how it can function to spread the Good News to the world.
Understanding Racism Today: How Good People can Contribute to the Problem without Awareness or Intent - When we compare ourselves to the blatant racism of the present and past, it’s easy to think that we are not a part of the problem. The reality is that, because racism is a complex system that operates on multiple levels, we can still contribute to the problem without awareness or intent. Join us to develop a biblical framework of racism, expand our understanding of the problem, and hear examples of how it could be manifesting in the thoughts and actions of ourselves and our faith communities.
Living into Racial Reconciliation: Practical Steps for a Christ-like Response - So you know, you care, but your not sure what to do about it. Whether your just beginning to learn about racism or have been exploring this issue for a lifetime, RCCI offers a variety of entry points, action steps, and resources to equip you to dismantle racism as an expression of your faith.
People are strongly encouraged to attend all three workshops as they build upon one another, but you are welcome to register for single workshops as well.
All are welcome to attend RCCI’s workshops. They are offered for a suggested donation of $15 each.
