As people become more vocal about their thoughts and opinions of others, how can we as youth workers examine our own biases in order to help build people who see others as Jesus does? This session will examine how prejudice can seep its way into our own lives and from there into the ministries we lead along with how we can be a welcoming community to those who do life different from us.
