The LiVE Project presents this six-week course: "Interrogating Privilege in Church and Our Lives"

Living into Vocational Engagement is a new initiative of the NW WA Synod to accompany lay leaders in ways that encourage and deepen God’s calling for their lives.   

This six-week course is designed specifically for lay leaders to open up transparent, and honest conversation around the ways privilege shapes and impacts our lives and communities of faith.    

Those who will benefit from this opportunity:  

  • those looking for additional conversational partners around our synod who have interest and experience engaging similar conversations
  • those open to exploring courageously their own privilege
  • those working to imagine and implement anti-racism, diversity, inclusion and equity teams within your congregation   
  • rostered leaders welcome to attend with lay leaders

Session Topics Include:  

  • The God of our privilege: Where is God among our privilege? 
  • Privilege from a Lutheran perspective: What does Lutheran theology have to say?  
  • Naming our privilege: How can we identify our personal and corporate experiences? 
  • Broadening the conversation: What do other marginalized voices have to say? 
  • Collaboration as strategy: How can we reconfigure power? 
  • Living forward: What is our work moving forward?   

The learning facilitators for the course are Rev. Priscilla Paris Austin, Immanuel Lutheran Church, Seattle, and Dr. David Hahn, Dir. of Formation and Learning for the NW WA Synod.
