This fall we will begin a study of the book, "True Inclusion: Creating Communites of Radical Embrace" by Brandan Robertson.
You may be asking yourself, "but wait, we're an Open and Affirming Congregation and a really nice group of people--aren't we inclusive?"
Well, the description on the back cover may explain it best: "So your church website says you're welcoming, a rainbow flag flies out front, worship uses gender-inclusive language, and you make sure you greet the stranger next to you on Sunday mornings. But is all of that really enough?"
Journeying together through this study, we will learn about the definitions and foundations of this way of living and explore practical, step-by-step ways we can continue moving toward a congregation that is truly inclusive. Please reach out to Tonja to show your interest and talk about dates and times that would work for you to be a part!
