We are ReconcilingWorks together! ReconcilingWorks will be hosting a number of Regional Tours as a time to gather, worship, celebrate, learn, and vision about what is next for the work of welcome, inclusion, and celebration of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) people and their families in the Lutheran communion. ReconcilingWorks Executive Director Aubrey Thonvold looks forward to being church together in deepening and expanding our lived experience of God’s love for all. Find an up and coming city near you!
A Building an Inclusive Church (BIC) training helps you design and implement a journey for your congregation to publicly and intentionally welcome people of all gender identities and sexual orientations. Building an Inclusive Church equips you with ways to create dialogue, deepening relationships throughout the congregation rather than sparking debate and division. You will have opportunities to engage through a mix of presentation, hands-on practice, and small group discussion. Many of the tools you will learn come from faith-based relational organizing. Grounded in scripture and discipleship, this training allows you to explore your own Christian call to hospitality and evangelism.
