This event will highlight an inclusive vision among African-American pastors, parishioners and community leaders on the topic of welcoming and including our LGBTQ / Same-Gender Loving brothers and sisters into the life of the church community. Leading this discussion will be seminarians, professors and pastors who will share their cutting-edge research on Black Queer Theology. Come listen to and reflect on the presentations from the next generation of thought-leaders on these transformative topics. Curriculum and film resources will be available for participants. We are continuing the rich tradition of encouraging our young scholars in their current work as well as learning from seasoned theologians and preachers as they explore the intersections of African-American culture, the church and LGBTQ identity. It also promises to be a time of retreat and inspiration through ritual, praise and worship.
