Workshop Inspiration Day “What do you mean equality?”

Rien van der Toorn will give a workshop during the Inspiration Day on November 11. The theme of the day is: ‘Gracism – growing as a church in equality’. The theme of Rien’s workshop is: ‘What do you mean equality?’…

Of course, everyone thinks equality is a good idea. But what do we mean by it? Isn’t our definition of equality colored by our cultural lenses? Are we perhaps selectively equal? Is the leader equal to the members, or are we served with a degree of inequality? Isn’t distinction necessary?

Enough to think about together in this seminar.

Rien van der Toorn is a non-Western sociologist and, together with his Iranian wife, runs a training and consultancy agency for intercultural work. He trains organizations, companies, government and churches in dealing with diversity. In addition, they have developed an acculturation method for newcomers in Dutch society for the municipality of Leiden. Rien lectures at Tyndale Theological Seminary, the Evangelical College and Foundation Academy of Amsterdam.
