Creating the Interfaith Beloved Community

Many Faith Communities in our area are struggling with being welcoming and inclusive to all. What does that look like? What are the hurdles to creating true community? The speaker, Vanessa Julye*, will discuss how to assess a Faith Community in terms of racism and other biases, and the difficulties inherent in moving toward a more inclusive, inviting community.
What is it that creates the divides between us, and what can we do to bridge those gaps?

Donations gratefully accepted – please pay as you feel led.
