Worship Service: "Choosing the Path of More Resistance: Using Privilege to Move Justice Forward"
by Lisa Perry-Wood, M.Div.
Most of us hold privilege in groups we belong to, whether it's race, economic class, gender, sexual orientation, or as members of many other identities. When we take advantage of the privileges that membership in those groups offer us, we are, unknowingly, says Allan Johnson in his book Privilege, Power and Difference, "choosing the paths of least resistance."
In her message, Lisa Perry-Wood will explore the different choices we might make, based upon our awareness of privilege. Choosing paths of "more resistance" may provide ways for us to make a difference in the injustices of our world.
