This workshop has been cancelled. Please select another Ghost Ranch spirituality workshop. Also, look for this offering again in 202o. Indeed we live as humans beings, but we do not wage war according to human standards; for the weapons of our warfare are not merely human, but they have divine power to destroy strongholds.” II Corinthians 10: 3-4 / NRSV
In this time of deep polarization and pain in our country, people of faith and goodwill long to find ways to connect across barriers of exclusion and oppression. These barriers show up in the strongholds of racism, xenophobia, white supremacy and environmental abuse. As they intersect with one another, they augment each other’s destructive power. Overcoming these strongholds requires breaching the divisions upon which they thrive.
When people hear one another’s stories, divisions dissolve.
Stories trigger compassion, commitment, and community. They allow connection to happen. This week at Ghost Ranch will be an intersectional story event in which we will:
- Learn and practice listening and dialogue skills that build relationships across boundaries to support healing divisions in church and culture.
- Experience a Feast Day at Ohkay Owingeh Pueblo (formerly the San Juan Pueblo).
- Explore these intersections through worship, storytelling, the arts and the powerful landscape of Ghost Ranch.
