In "Faith like a River," a Tapestry of Faith program
Even our younger congregations may include members who personally remember, for example, the work of Martha and Waitstill Sharp during World War II or who attended a General Assembly when resolutions concerning LGBTQ were passed. Some, older congregations cherish stories of individuals or actions in support of abolition of slavery, rights for African Americans, or women's rights.
Invite your minister, religious educator, congregational historian, or longtime members to visit your workshop to discuss ways one of the issues explored in this workshop touched your congregation. Has your congregation done research to identify connections to slavery and/or the abolition movement, the movement for marriage equality, or the fight against discrimination on the basis of gender or sexual orientation? Is there something left incomplete in the work your congregation has participated in? What is there to celebrate? Is there something for which to atone?
