World Council of Churches -Anti-Racism Programming 

DOTAC received financial support from the World Council of Churches “Pilgrimage of Justice and Peace” to sponsor anti-racism programming.  

DOTAC Racial Justice Journey 

The anti-racism events begun in the fall of 2020 and again in Lent 2021, were continued this summer.  In June and July, Marlene Britton, David Rojas Martίnez, Hyerim Park, and Colleen Bernu, led 35 diaconal participants in this important listening and learning.  We are most thankful for their courageous vulnerability, clear challenges, and depth of spirit. 


On August 9, we held a virtual KAIROS Blanket Exercise.  The goal of the sessions is to build understanding about the shared history as Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in Canada by walking through pre-contact, treaty-making, colonization and resistance. In the original version, everyone is actively involved as they step onto blankets that represent the land, and into the role of First Nations, Inuit and later Métis peoples. The online version developed during COVID honors the experiential and participatory elements of the in-person original.

Starting with the DOVE (Diakonia Overcoming Violence Exchange) event today. I'll be with diaconal colleagues from the USA, Brazil, the Caribbean, and Canada. Thank you so much to the Wesley Diaconal Community of the Methodist Church of the Caribbean and the Americas for all their work and effort and pulling this together. We were supposed to be in Jamaica in September 2020 for this -- but postponed, and then decided to go virtual. We have a wonderful line-up of speakers and presentators. Really looking forward to this. ... See MoreSee Less

What an excellent initiative! I wish the DOVE event every success and hope that the message of diakonia overcoming violence will spread.

I wear black on Thursdays in support of the movement towards a world without rape and violence, because I believe that as a child of and worker in the kin-dom of God that I have a call to share the love of God to all and that where there is pain and suffering that it is my call to find whatever ways that I might be able to help to ease that pain and suffering. -Sister Megan McClinton, The Deaconess Community of the ELCA

You don't CHOOSE one CAUSE but, your LIFESTYLE and SPEECH MATTER most to represent the KINGDOM OF our LORD JESUS. Once you advocate for the GLORY of the KINGDOM OF GOD, the BETTER the world is getting out of darkness to the LIGHT OF our JESUS CHRIST.

The deadline for applications for stewards at the 11th Assembly of the World Council of Churches (to be held in Karlsruhe, Germany, August-September 2022) has been extended. Apparently, there are currently disproportionately few applications from North America. Applicants must be aged 18-30 and have an active church connection. Applicants who have never travelled outside of their own country are particularly encouraged to apply.
