Those seeking a spirituality that engages the issues of racisms, ethnocentrism and religious bigotry can find an ongoing resource in the Racial Sobriety program. Many religious traditions and Christian denominations have used the program to support their confessional beliefs as they seek to bring their congregations, institutions and pastoral ministers into a commitment to the human family under God.
For those seeking an institutional approach such as education, community organization and global leadership, there are existing programs that can be presented in the context of biblical and confessional tenets. Go to the previous pages to review those offerings.
In the design of our programs, local religious leadership articulates the appropriate spirituality for racial sobriety in their tradition. The following list of past programs exhibit the range of vision and scope that our partners in ministry have realized.
