Food For Thought: Where God is Resurrecting Sacred Community In The Least Likely Places

About the Event
Please join us via Zoom to our September Food for Thought with a great presentation from John Cleghorn.
Note that the date is one week earlier than usual due to Yom Kippur.
Is there room to build our houses of faith from the margins in? What happens when multiple types of diversity converge in one faith community? Can we get a glimpse of what congregations could be in America’s majority-minority future?
Come to a dialogue on these and other questions with Rev. John Cleghorn, whose book includes original research about some of the most diverse congregations in America. “Resurrecting Church: Where Justice and Diversity Meet Radical Welcome and Healing Hope” explores the experiences of these churches along with that of Caldwell Presbyterian’s own surprising resurrection. It also includes John’s personal story of liberation from the myopia of privilege and whiteness.
*Given the continued presence of Covid-19 in our community and our desire to protect one another and our compassionate faith values, this will be a virtual event.

MeckMIN promotes interfaith collaboration to foster understanding, compassion and justice. We envision a community that lives by the highest values and core virtues of its rich faith traditions and respects the dignity of every person. We live out these values by bringing together people from different faith perspectives and promoting congregational engagement through dialogue and fellowship.
