group of Baptist leaders from across mexico and central and South
America.
All services and workshops were conducted in Spanish with interpreters provided for the non-Spanish speaking attendees. It was an
immersion experience for many participants coming from the North.
We were immersed into the language, food, community and spirituality
of latin culture. We were invited to consider faith through the lens of
a culture that values "we" over "I."
Worship leaders gerardo oberman and horacio vivares,
(co-founders of Red crearte, a latin American liturgical network),
encouraged us to transcend the barriers of language through the use
of images, rituals and music. their worship style focused on collaboration-all who wanted to participate were included, regardless of
the level of musical expertise. Passion and meaning flowed through
every service with worshipers frequently on their feet, moving to the
latin music.
The final night of Peace Camp concluded with a fiesta. Participants feasted on traditional mexican food followed by music and
salsa dancing. young and old, expert dancers and beginners, Spanish
speakers and English speakers-all shared the floor and celebrated the
gift of connection and friendship. united by our faith and a common
commitment to the work of peace and justice that crosses all boundaries, we joyfully shared in a night of salsa and solidarity.
