We are excited to have the opportunity to talk about the Reconciling in Chirst program. We'll discuss why this might be an important step for your congregation and how to start the process. Guests from RIC churches will talk about their experience of becoming RIC and how that has affected their congregations.
Do you have any questions about RIC and full inclusion that we can answer here or at the workshop, or do you have any comments about your church's actions to be welcoming and inclusive?

This workshop will focus on discussion around why speaking our welcome is often so much easier than actually living out active hospitality to the stranger in our congregations. How do we learn to translate our intent to welcome everyone to actual hospitable behavior that goes beyond mere tolerance of "differentness" to a celebration of diversity?
Here are some of the questions we'll be trying to find answers for during this workshop - please feel free to offer your comments about any of them. I'd love to hear what you think!
In a sentence, reconciled community in a reconciled world. (But in case you need more…)
