Colossians 2:6-7 (CEB) – So live in Christ Jesus the Lord in the same way as you received him. Be rooted and built up in him, be established in faith, and overflow with thanksgiving just as you were taught.
The goal of this session is to help the participants experience what it feels like to be in a grounded emotional state. While we are grounded we can begin to notice and name our racialized identities without being enmeshed in their reactivities.
In this session, youth will name the emotions that are present within them when they discuss race.
