Online Event: Equality And Acceptance In The Church
September 19, 2020 – 9:00AM to 11:30AM
Life Together: You Too Are Brought Near” is a free online and on-site conference on inclusion that will be hosted outdoors by Thompson Memorial Presbyterian Church in New Hope, PA on September 19th and 20th. The conference will include four speakers from Princeton Theological Seminary, covering the theological importance and biblical basis for inclusion—particularly in regard to race, disability, and the LGBTQ+ community.
The free conference will begin on Saturday, Sept. 19th at 9:00am and continue until 11:30am. In the first hour, Kevin Vollrath (MDiv., PhD Candidate) will speak on intersectionality, disability, and “best practices” for communities seeking to create inclusive spaces.
In the second hour, Deborah Jodrey (MDiv, MACEF) and Lindsey Jodrey (Rev. Dr.) will speak on the LGBTQ+ community, gender and sexual identity, language, and the theological importance of gender inclusivity.
On Sunday, September 20th, starting at 10:30am, Eric Barreto (Dr.) will speak on racial and ethnic inclusion, theology, and the radical hospitality demonstrated by Jesus in his ministry.
Come join us as we seek to learn and become a more welcoming community. You may join online via Zoom or participate in person (limited space available). If you plan to attend the outdoor conference in person, please bring a mask and chair.
