Soul Work is Prophetic Work! 

 

How can we become the “prophetic church,” dismantling systems of privilege and oppression to co-create a multicultural community of Love and Justice?

James Luther Adams wrote: “A church that does not concern itself with the struggle in history for human decency and justice, a church that does not show concern for the shape of things to come, a church that does not attempt to interpret the signs of the times, is not a prophetic church…

The prophetic liberal church is the church in which persons think and work together to interpret the signs of the times in the light of their faith, to make explicit through discussion the epochal thinking that the times demand.” Transforming Liberalism: The Theology of James Luther Adams

Together, we will experience multicultural community including:

•Sacred conversations around valuing difference;

•Thinking and working together to respond to the urgency of becoming a multicultural faith community given our current times;

•Challenging, within the context of covenantal relationship, the unexamined values that guide our congregational life;

•Tools to move us into deeper action along the path of realizing the Beloved Multiracial/Multicultural Community through dismantling systems of privilege and oppression;

•Creating connections that help us remember, especially in times of struggle and in times of joy, this shared work is ours. “We are all in this together.”
