From the tables in our churches to the Supreme Court benches

By June 22, 2020No Comments

Part of the Disciples Just Summer series, AllianceQ hosts this Facebook Live event to share info about its 40 years of ministry alongside the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and how individuals can join in the work of setting a place at the table for persons of all gender expressions and sexual identities. As Disciples, we share a radically wide table. We know we’re in different places. Join us as we explore the table’s wide welcome.

The 60-minute event will feature stories of welcome from individuals and churches. A question-and-answer period with AllianceQ leaders will be facilitated by Rev. Brian Frederick-Gray (Disciples Peace Fellowship) and DPF interns.

Bring your lunch (or a mid-morning snack if you’re on the west coast); after all, the focus of the conversation is the table. In preparation for the event, AllianceQ is collecting photos of your tables. Members and friends, email a picture of your dining table to [email protected] Clergy, please also send pictures of your congregation’s communion table.

You’re also invited to RIOT: Turning Over Tables, a Pride worship service centering LGBTQIA+ voices of color, on Sunday, June 28, at 6 p.m. CST. More info and (free) registration at disciplesallianceq.org/riot/
