Beloved Community Training Day

BELOVED COMMUNITY TRAINING DAY 2018

Saturday, February 10, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Grace Cathedral

2018 follows a year that was filled with truth telling and honest conversations about power and oppression. The “Me too” movement has led to the “Time's Up” movement. Society seems poised to step into a new place. The Episcopal Church has been working to make our churches places of safety for all. We’ve taken serious steps to stop abuse in our churches as we continue to improve our training and policies. But beyond policy is the good news of the gospel that calls us into right relationships with God and each other. How do we take this theological message to “respect the dignity of every human being” into a hurting world? How can our churches become models of the Beloved Community where folks practice inclusion, caring, and safety for all?
