You are invited to participate in November’s Synchroblog – Seeing Through the Eyes of the Marginalized

1 Nov

Marginalization results in an individual’s exclusion from meaningful participation in society and it’s source is many. Economic circumstances, illness, disability, geographical location, gender, sexuality, race, religion are all dominant sources of individuals being marginalized. Sometimes it’s easy to see holidays or certain systems from a position of power or privilege. * As God’s people, what does it mean to see the world through the eyes of the marginalized?

  • What is it like to be one of the marginalized?
  • How can we be part of bridging some of these gaps?

Use your voice to make a difference on this sensitive issue.

Please post your link here in the comments section or email your name, post title, blog name and link to Kathy Escobar at synchroblog@gmail.com and  we will compile all of the links into one list.
