https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_87jqOMD4rU&t=81s Dr. David Anderson Hooker at the Reconciliation Ministry Breakfast at GA 2019 on the power of Narrative. His insight about "who was there" changed the way I view scripture.
“Holy Hierarchies: The Religious Roots of Racism in America” available on Amazon Prime and Netflix - powerful reminder that white privilege is not only baked into our laws but into much of the Christianity we inherited and does so with a review of history that demonstrates convincingly the role of religion in creating the myth of white superiority..
Dr. Hooker is leading a group of us in workshops Friday and Saturday on Transformative Community Conferencing - title of his book. (Sample here.)
“Transforming Community Conferencing is a community engagement and change approach that relies on certain principles that are central to most restorative justice approaches such as inclusive processes and broad consideration of continuing harms. The TCC model extends beyond typical restorative practices by drawing on the power of narrative to connect individual experiences of present harm to systemic and structural sources of harm and to the narrative of societal discourse that gives meaning and sanction to those systems and structures.” Anderson Hooker, page 4
