Becoming Beloved Community Teach-Ins: History; Stories; Invitations

Oct 1, 8, 15 from 7-8:30pm via zoom

Are you interested in learning more about Becoming Beloved Community – the history and its purpose? Are you curious about how people are engaging in the work of racial healing and justice, rooted in the Way of Love? Are you longing to be in community with other people of faith and followers of Jesus to explore where God is calling you in this work right now? Join this series of Teach-Ins – for any or all of it – to learn, share, and connect.

On Thursday, October 1, 8, and 15 from 7-8:30, join together with others across our diocese to learn from those who have been engaging in the work of Becoming Beloved Community to learn firsthand their stories of faith and ministry. Lay and clergy leaders will share their stories of how they have engaged in this work and the impact it’s had on them personally as well as in their communities. You’ll hear from leaders who find themselves all along the journey–from just getting started to those who have been engaged in the work for years, decades. All kinds of congregations will be represented. Each session will provide an opportunity to be in conversations with others like you looking to follow Jesus in the healing and justice-making of our world.

October 1 (History): Rev. Meribah Mansfield (St Stephen’s, Columbus) and Deborah Stokes-Wayne (St. Phillips, Columbus)
