Perceive the power!

Understanding racial and social privilege in mission relationships

August, 2010

We strive for mission partnerships where those involved engage one another with respect, dignity and mutuality.  Yet our gender, race, social class, place of birth and the resources to which we have access serve as undercurrents for our relationships at home and around the world.  What power dynamics come into play in intercultural mission relationships?  How can we learn to be aware of these dynamics, and how can we best handle them? This Perceive the power!webinar will go deeper into the ways we exercise power and privilege in mission relationships.

What is Mission Crossroads?

Mission Crossroads is a web-based wisdom community which facilitates networking among mission participants, aids communication among members of mission-related groups, and provides a forum in which those engaged in mission may share ideas and experiences, both good and bad, so that future mission endeavors can be more effective.
