The Power of Narrative: Evoking Empathy to Engage Diversity

Thursday, August 20, 10:30-11:50 AM
We live in a world shaped by stories. We dream in narrative, day-dream in narrative, remember, anticipate, hope, despair, believe, doubt, plan, revise, criticize, construct, gossip, learn, hate, and love by narrative. Stories are the threads of our lives and the fabric of human cultures. A story can unite or divide people(s), obscure issues, or spotlight new perspectives. A story can inform or deceive, enlighten or entertain, or even do all of the above.

During our time together, we will explore God's story of reconciliation, discover our own story anew, travel with the story of the "other" and return to our own with new eyes. This narrative form of learning and insight is one of the building blocks to work on diversity, equity, inclusion & belonging.
