Join us this Sunday, August 3rd!
9:30 a.m. Program: Critical Legislative and Political Issues: the Significance of the Election Campaign.
Paul Johnson, longtime active observer and lobbyist on social justice issues in the Kansas legislature will address critical issues and our responsibilities as participants in the process. (See p. 2 in the newsletter for more information about Paul Johnson.)
11:00 a.m. Spiritual Celebration:“Gender and the Big Tent”
Stephanie Mott, founder of the Kansas Statewide Transgender Education Project, will speak and sing in celebration of transgender understanding and inclusion. We will pause to remember that none of us owns the big tent. It is not our place to magnanimously let in one more marginalized group -- we're reminding ourselves that that as much as we'd loved to "other" people who are different from us, there is no "us" or "them." We are all equally worthy people in one great human family with many differences, and transgendered people represent one of those differences -- one that we have not yet done a good job acknowledging or understanding.
Our nursery is open starting at 9:15 a.m.
Children’s Sunday School runs from 9:30-10:30 a.m. with activity time from 11:00-12:00.
