Online Inclusive Gathering: The story of IGB
April 11, 2021
04:00 pm - 06:30 pm
On Sunday, 11th April we’ll be starting a new 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.
To kick off this series, we’re going to be joined by a number of the original folks who helped get Inclusive Gathering Birmingham going (then New Inclusive Church) back in the day and listen to them tell the story of our start. So those of you who’ve been around for a while can look forward to seeing some familiar faces.
In addition to a bunch of stories, we’ll also have music, questions and a bunch of banter in the chat. You’re also invited to join us for a chat and social time on Zoom at 5:15.
You will need to be logged into a Zoom account with a public account name in order to access this Zoom.
Meeting ID: 853 6699 5635
About Inclusive Gathering Birmingham …
ABOUT IGB …
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.
