Save the Date, Feb. 18

The Welcoming Congregations Team is delighted to announce a new Sunday afternoon film series exploring the power of welcoming and inclusion as important features of human experience. Our kickoff event on Sunday February 18 is a showing of the film Normal, a moving fictional depiction of the gender transition of Ruth Applewood, a conservative Midwestern transgender woman who has been living as a man (“Roy”) for 25 years of marriage. The film depicts the emotional struggles and challenges experienced by her, her spouse and family, her church, and community as they work to accommodate to this new reality. Please come and join us in the Children’s Chapel at 12:00 noon. A light lunch will be served beforehand with time for discussion after the showing of the film. RSVP strongly encouraged: Childcare will be provided with advance notice.
