Video stories that will open participants to new ways of thinking, spur their own self-examination, offer a sense of common experience, and spur thoughtful dialogue.
How do you talk about racial prejudice, entrenched poverty and exploitation, segregation, the loss of local education and employment, the ravages of addiction, and more? Holding up Your Corner walks you through a self-directed process of determining what role your church can play in your specific community. You’ll learn how to use testimony and other narrative devices, proclamation, guided group conversations, and other tactics in order to own the calling and responsibility we have as Christians. Examples from a wide variety of churches and leaders make this a valuable resource for everyone concerned with racial justice.
The DVD includes video clips from clergy and other Christian leaders across the country that will spur dialogue and self-examination. Each presenter shares a personal story related to one of the discussion points in the guided conversation.
