Wednesdays, January 9 – 30
5:00 – 6:00 p.m. in rooms MB302 and MB305
The Discernment Team is tasked with helping our congregation discern, with love, our desired future to “be a church that welcomes and includes all in a way consistent with God’s love and wisdom, and specifically, how God is calling us to welcome and include LGBTQ persons.” To facilitate hearing the many voices of our congregation, the Discernment Team wants to provide a listening space to hear the hopes, fears, and questions people may have. On four Wednesdays, January 9-30, there will be at least two members of the Discernment Team available to listen to congregational members or to answer questions about the process. Team members will collect questions and make notes on what they hear.
Bible study communities will also be invited to write out questions on note cards and return them to the church office. These questions, along with notes from the listening spaces, will guide the content for the panel discussion on Sunday, February 17.
