This forum is the first planned event in which participants will have the opportunity "to listen to one another, to listen for the promptings of God's Spirit, and to discover news ways in which we can serve and be in ministry together in spite of holding different opinions about a number of issues" (from Bishop's post-Annual Conference Reflections.) On February 21, you are invited to join others in exploring ways in which small groups can engage in healthy conversations around issues of human sexuality. The afternoon will include:
- A 4-person demonstration of a Healthy Conversation around Human Sexuality
- A presentation on guidelines and best practices for healthy conversations
- An opportunity for small groups at each location to engage in a healthy conversation
- A discussion of next steps and closing worship with communion.
