My workshop:

We live in a time of great racial strife and global conflict unveiled in the issue of immigration. This seminar will help you analyze immigration through a post-colonial lens and equip you with the tools for comprehensive immigration reform. How do we work toward healing, reconciliation, and justice among all people, regardless of gender, race and religion?

In her new book Embracing the Other Grace Ji-Sun Kim argues that it is possible only through God’s Spirit. Working from an Asian American feminist perspective, Kim develops a new constructive global pneumatology that works toward gender and racial justice. Drawing on the concept of spirit breath in Asian and indigenous cultures, she reimagines the divine as “Spirit God” who is restoring shalom in the world. This “Spirit God” concept, Kim says, provides a holistic understanding of both God and humans that extends beyond gender, race and religion. Through the power of Spirit God our brokenness is healed and we can truly love and embrace the Other. Come out and learn how to channel your erotic power through gathering people for comprehensive immigration reform today.
