1. What is the symbolism underlying the title of Chapter 10 of Jim Wallis’ book that we read for today’s class?

 

2. What is meant by the “welcome table”? What are its biblical origins? What is the significance and symbolism for Black Americans? For all Americans?

 

3. What, according to Wallis, is meant by the “geography of race”? Do you agree? What are different forms that “relocation”? Is there any step toward “relocation” that you see as possible for yourself?

 

4. What is your take-way from the NY Times Podcast, “Still Processing” on the use of the N-word. Did anything surprise you as you listened to it? Was it hard to listen to?
