Since July 2002, the Reconciling in Christ program has been committed to the inclusion of people of all sexual orientations and gender identities.

All congregations, colleges, synods, seminaries and organizations on the RIC Roster have adopted Affirmations of Welcome of gay and lesbian persons. The searchable Reconciling in Christ (RIC) congregration list is on a separate page.

RIC Sunday: January 26, 2014

“God is my light and salvation! Whom shall I fear?”

In an anxious world, Psalm 27 makes a bold claim: Don’t hide in fear’s shadows—come, live in the light! As a Reconciling In Christ community, you know what it means to answer this calling. You are a church where people of every sexual orientation and gender identity are welcome to live without fear.

This year many congregations will celebrate Reconciling In Christ Sunday on January 26, 2014, the third Sunday after Epiphany. Will you?
