Overcoming Challenges to Racial and Ethnic Diversity

By looking at successfully diverse churches across the nation, this session revealed critical attitudes for cultivating a hospitable church, perspectives on recent immigration and the neighborhood church, and experiments on musical variety and global awareness.

This workshop was given for pioneers working through the challenge of creating ethnically and racially diverse churches.

This workshop stimulated many ideas through discussion of gestures that signal openness, strategies for contextualizing musical practices that incorporate rather than alienate while avoiding ethnic and racial stereotypes, and issues of change and transition.

Presented at the 2008 Calvin Symposium on Worship.
