The Lie that Caused Racism has touched all parts of our world and left its mark. Our core 6-part story - that you can learn in the Training Cohorts - tells the big picture, but there's lots of things it leaves out. In order to disrupt the Lie, you need to remember and Tell the Truth of what happened where you live.
This new Creators cohort will support you to wonder about, research, theologically frame, and write your story, using the same principles that guided us in creating "The Lie that Caused Racism". We will wonder what is the story of your state/ region/ indigenous people? When and how has the dignity of people been disregarded, violated? What is the story that needs to be told to create healing and new life?
In the Creator’s cohort, each participant will
Tell one of the stories from "The Lie that Caused Racism"
Discern what story they want to tell about their region and what story needs to be heard
Write and tell the story, with feedback from cohort members
Each cohort participant is encouraged to have an auditor who will co-create the new story.
The Creator's cohort meets weekly over zoom for 6, 2-hour sessions. The cost is 350$ per participant. If cost is an issue there are likely scholarships available through your diocese, and we can talk with you more about ways to make it affordable for you.
