Kaleidoscope Institute Northwest

February 27 - March 2

The Kaleidoscope Institute and Spirit of Grace church invite you to the KI Northwest Institute – a time to learn and practice tools for meaningful dialogue on difficult issues of our time. We will take the time to thoughtfully engage with the voices of scripture, culture, history, and our own diverse experiences in order to integrate knowledge, attitude, and skills for facilitating the good work in our local communities.

Who is this for? Church leaders, civic leaders, neighbors and community members are all welcome. We will honor everyone’s perspectives and use a process to encourage deep listening and honest sharing about personal experiences.

Why come?

• To learn and practice tools for creating gracious spaces and dialogue in the midst of difference and cultural conflict
• To enter courageous spaces with fellow leaders and allies
• To deepen understanding of the intersection between spirituality and justice.

Feb. 27 – Mar. 1, 9:00 am-3:30 pm
Gracious Leadership and Building Bridges Now Facilitator Training

In an increasingly polarized world, there are few places where people can have a healthy and constructive dialogue about race and other important issues of our time. Imagine the churches in your neighborhood having the ability to provide gracious time and place for truth-seeking dialogue that can achieve non-violent, mutual understanding. Experience and practice these leadership skills and tools for building inclusive, multicultural community dialogues.
GracEconomic Registration fee: $450-900*

Mar. 2, 9:00 am-4:30 pm
Holy Currencies Orientation
Learn how to transform your ministry, making it missional and sustainable by developing the Holy Currencies of Time & Place, Gracious Leadership, Relationship, Truth, Money, and Wellness. These currencies flow to form a Cycle of Blessings which empower congregations to strengthen their internal relationships and reach out to connect with diverse populations in their neighborhoods.
GracEconomic Registration fee: $150-300*

*GracEconomics means you pay according to your ability. We ask that you pay as close to the top of the range as you are able so that we can provide these trainings to people with fewer resources. If the low end of the range is not affordable to you, please let us know and we can arrange something together.

Registration includes light breakfast, warm lunch, coffee, and tea each day.
