Pondering Privilege : Toward a Deeper Understanding of Whiteness, Race, and Faith / by Jody Wiley Fernando.

By: Fernando, Jody Wiley [author.]Material type: TextTextPublisher: Minneapolis, MN : NextStep Publishers, 2016Description: 85 pages ; 23 cmISBN: 9780911802849; 0911802843Subject(s): Race relations -- Religious aspects -- Christianity | Church and social problemsLOC classification: BT734.2 .F47 2016Summary: For many white people, race can be a difficult subject to navigate. Some have never discussed the issue and may have no idea where to begin. Others, viewing themselves as color blind, see no need to think about the issue at all. The topic grows even more difficult within the Christian church where it is no secret that Sunday mornings are often more racially divided than united. Regardless of white people's ignorance or inability to discuss racial issues, however, they are clearly not going away. Rooted in the concept of cultural humility, "Pondering Privilege" helps readers more deeply reflect on their individual and communal role in race relations by exploring ideas like why white people don't talk about race, why they need to talk about race, suggestions for productive ways to discuss race, and how to deal with anger in race relations. Each chapter includes discussion and reflection questions and is ideal for personal or group use. -- Publisher's description.
