CANCELED: Real Talk: Othering in the Contemporary Church

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

All are welcome as we explore how race, class, gender, citizenship status, sexualities, incarceration history, and other aspects of social difference challenge and transform the status quo of our lived realities as Christians in contemporary U.S. society. How do Jesus-​loving Christians of diverse backgrounds discern the limits of social inclusion within Christian communities? What guidance does the Scripture provide? How do we practice fidelity to the First and Greatest Commandment given various theological, social, historical, generational, and political contexts? Come ready to hear and share stories, struggles, and strategies for navigating matters of privilege, equity, and justice in the face of resistance, prejudice, and ignorance within our own worshiping communities ... and within ourselves.
