Please join me at this special event held by EAST: Episcopal Asian Supper Table. I will be speaking on my books, Invisible and Healing Our Broken Humanity.
|Invisibility persists throughout the story of Asians in North America, regardless of how long they’ve been here. Xenophobia has long contributed to racism and discrimination toward Asian Americans. At the same time, terms such as “perpetual foreigner,” “model minority,” and “honorific whites” have been thrust upon Asian Americans, minimizing their plight with racism, and erasing their experience as racial minorities. Invisibility is not only a racial and cultural issue, but also a profound spiritual issue. The Western church—and its theology—has historically obscured the concerns of Asian North Americans. Their experiences provide a window to understand how other groups and individuals are also made invisible and marginalized. Our speaker will explore Invisibility as a theological and spiritual concept and how this understanding can help to heal our broken humanity. RSVP NOW.|
