In the wake of George Floyd’s death, Americans and people around the globe are expressing outrage and grief on a level I’ve never seem in my lifetime. It appears to be a moment in which God is doing something significant in the world and the church.
In this podcast, I offer one of the major contributions of EH Discipleship to this issue–the genogram as a tool to unlock the roots of generational racism in our families, cultures, countries, and institutions. Geri and I spent over 17 years developing this tool because of its unique power to help us get at roots in our discipleship with and for Jesus.
I look at my particular genogram from the perspective of how issues of race were handled, and what was passed on to me growing up as an Italian American. I then talk about my journey as a new believer and, eventually a pastor, with bridging race, class and culture. And, how God used the genogram, and EH Discipleship as a whole, to enable us to become a healing, transformative community in ways far beyond anything we could have imagined.
I invite you, and your team, to engage in an expanded experience with one of our Team Transformational Videos called: Explore Your Genogram – on a personal, racial, and church level – as you consider what God’s next steps for you might be.
