The living tradition includes men and women responding to a call to use their prophetic voices in calling for social justice. Today we continue to live in a world where we are treated differently due to differences of social identity. This interactive workshop will offer participants an opportunity to: 1) understand theory around diversity and social justice; 2) reflect upon our social identities; and 3) discuss ways in which chaplains can integrate insights into pastoral practice.
As a result of this workshop, participants will:
- Increase awareness around social identity.
- Have a framework in which to talk about the how diversity impacts our relating.
- Reflect together upon the social identities that matter to us, and on ways to address issues of diversity within the role of chaplain.
