During General Assembly (2017), Reconciliation Ministry launched a new initiative, “One Bag of Tea, One Conversation, One Relationship.” This campaign is founded in the principle of “Oneness in Christ”. In our endeavor to work for racial and social justice and to ensure radical welcome for all, we can only accomplish this if we know each other better.
We invite you to join the movement towards wholeness and embark on the journey of breaking down the walls that separate us by strengthening the bonds that make us one. The idea is simple: 1) invite someone or a group to share a cup of tea with, preferable someone you would like to know more about. For example, you can choose someone or a congregation that is different from you such as in gender, age, race, etc., pick a date and location and follow the steps in the script to the right.
Our office has special packets of tea with the script and wrappers with specific questions, each packet has a cost of $15 (shipping included) and it comes with 20 tea bags.
If you are interested in doing this in your congregation or want more information about it, feel free to contact us!
