We'd love to come to your faith community for preaching, teaching, retreat planning, or workshops.
We specialize in:
Bible study, theology, workshops, and preaching on:
Feminist approaches to Christianity
Trans and gender non-conforming justice, spirituality, and identities
White people work - there are some conversations that people of color simply shouldn't have to have. Engaging together what it means to address white supremacy - in our faith communities, societal structures, internal lives, and cultural norms - is work white people absolutely must be doing today.
Connecting our faith with the work of liberation
We believe none of the above conversations can take place with any integrity without simultaneously addressing whiteness and it's influence on our social identities, efforts to pursue justice and liberation, and our very understanding of Christianity.
It is our hope and expectation that any community in search of deepening its understanding and commitment of any of the above would also invite and encourage matters of racial injustice to be brought into the conversation as well.
All of our preaching, teaching, and trainings seek to include but also deepen beyond the surface level approach to engaging in conversations related to social justice - especially as people of faith. Lasting transformation occurs at the roots - where capitalism and racism and sexism and heterosexism and ableism and cissexism are all entangled.
The solutions aren't simple or clear or singular and can't be fully addressed in any one session. But together, we can follow the movement of the Spirit on this life-long journey of becoming, looking inward, leaning on community, and trusting that - together - we can contribute to the coming of the Kindom.
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your interest, potential dates, and proposed budget and we'll get back to you with our availability, suggestions, or questions as soon as possible.
