Online Inclusive Gathering – Pentecost
May 23, 2021
04:00 pm - 06:30 pm
Sunday 23rd May is a day the church remembers Pentecost. People of faith around the world will be talking about the Holy Spirit and what her power is and does.
Lots of us come from different understandings and experience of the Spirit. We’ve come to see the differences around this as an area we need to approach thoughtfully with hearts of inclusion (as the Spirit has been wrongly used as a source of exclusion). A group of folks within IGB have been doing some of this thinking together and will be sharing a bit about their journeys. And so …
This will be part of our series looking at the practice of inclusion and what it does/ can look like in a variety of areas of life and faith. The clue is in the name, but we see inclusion as a core part of our spirituality and our justice-seeking as a community.
We’ll reconvene on Zoom for further discussion at 5:15.
You will need to be logged into a Zoom account with a public account name in order to access this Zoom.

About Inclusive Gathering Birmingham …
Inclusive Gathering Birmingham is a diverse church gathered together by a common dream: to become a truly inclusive faith community, where doubt and difference are a welcome part of our journey together toward Jesus. We believe that the way of Jesus leads us to the wild, radical idea that true spiritual community can be formed based on who is INCLUDED, not by who is EXCLUDED. We are a learning community, constantly growing and changing to live out this vision in new and expanding ways.
When we say “inclusion”, we mean much more than mere tolerance or welcome. We believe God wants us all to know that we actually belong. That means people of every race and ethnicity, sexual orientation and gender identity, age and background, HIV status, ability and disability, theological and political conviction are loved, invited, and fully included.
