The New Realities of Race, Class and Jurisdiction in the Metro Richmond Area

Update 2.22.12 - 

We have scheduled this presentation for Saturday, 3.17.2012, and it is free and open to the public.  Check out this link…  You’re Invited.

 

Several weeks ago, I, along with about 40 others, were taught to facilitate a new presentation called Unpacking the 2010 Census: The New Realities of Race, Class and Jurisdiction.  It is a multi-media DVD presentation narrated by Dr. John Moeser, followed by a facilitated dialogue by 2 trained facilitators.

There are 2 options for the Unpacking the 2011 Census presentation:

  • A one-hour presentation with a focus on current data, comparing and contrasting poverty statistics in our region, and including a facilitated dialogue to follow.
  • A two-hour presentation includes the same data presentation plus a presentation of the historical context for the region. This is also followed by facilitated dialogue.
Although we will be facilitating this presentation all over the Metro Richmond area, I am most excited about having the opportunity to facilitate in Christian contexts including: churches, community/life/small groups, non-profit ministries, etc.  Not only can we take an opportunity to learn about these statistics and the historical context, but the group can also take time to explore why this is important from a biblical point of view….why it is important to God.  We will know how to pray.  And we can explore how we can then take action…as the church.
Looking forward to this presentation in our own Missional Community on Thursday, February 23rd!!!
