Hospitality in a Culture of Othering: A Critical Exploration of Multigenerational Community-Building Dialogues in Crumly’s Chapel Open Access
Baldwin II, John (Spring 2020)
This study outlines a model for bridging generational gaps and confronting racial tensions in the Crumly’s Chapel Community. Through creating space to engage social justice related scriptures in multi-generational and interracial contexts, this model serves as a beta-test for a more inclusive church. To place this visionary model in context, I first examine the culture of othering at the Crumly Chapel United Methodist Church (CCUMC). Then, I offer the project design with careful attention to the sample setting, methodology and module descriptions. The project invited youth and young adults into an open dialogue bible study space to explore scripture affirming marginalized persons and cross-cultural dialogue as a strategy for the Crumly Chapel UMC to strengthen community relationships.
