Save the date:
Our 2014 Fund Raising Event is set for March 21, 2014 at St. Pauls House.
Our entertainment will include the Sing to Live chorus.
Here are some quotes from our 2012-2013 group:
” Urban CPE has allowed me to see who I really am–not who I think I am or even hope to be”
“It has been important acknowledging my identity as a white woman in an urban setting, owning my role in the setting and being able to identify with those of different social position.”
“It’s been important for me, allowing me to work with those who don’t feel “welcome at the table.”
“I’ve learned the sin of systems…and the impact of systems on persons I was with.”
“The program has challenged me to go outside the rubrics and really face the situation in front of me.”
“I feel like my blinders have come off around systems and their impact on others. I think Jesus would be appalled.”
“Asking about a person’s story vs. a flurry of questions has allowed them to really open up and allow their needs to become clearer.”
