Since there are still spaces available, the Lutheran School of Theology Chicago has decided to offer a scheduled J-term course on faith based community organizing and building an inclusive church for three hours of continuing education credit. The weeklong class will run from January 9 thru 13, 2012, 9am to 4pm each day.
The course entitled, Transformation + Action = Oxygen, is designed to empower, equip, inspire, and activate participants to have life-giving, well-timed, appropriately-framed conversations with their congregants regarding the inclusion of people of all sexual orientations and gender identities.
The continuing education course is being offered by the seminary without a fee. The weeklong class will be team-taught by Emily Eastwood and Vicki Wunsch of Lutherans Concerned and Troy Plummer and Rachel Harvey of the Reconciling Ministries Network (the welcoming movement within the United Methodist Church).
Space is limited to 30, so signing up as quickly as possible is suggested. To register for the course, contact Lissa Messner at LC/NA headquarters, LissaM@lcna.org or (651) 665-0861.
Our thanks to the seminary for this generous offer.
