Building an Inclusive Church: A Welcoming Toolkit
“Welcome, we are so glad you are here!”
As we enter our churches, as we live as members, as we experience important life-cycle events (falling in love, marrying, having children, baptism, confirmation, coming out, transitioning, etc.), these words of welcome and the concurrent atmosphere of support, understanding and love are what we all long for. This manifestation of God’s Extravagant Welcome and the justice and societal witness that accompany it are the heart of what we hope to facilitate with Building an Inclusive Church: A Welcoming Toolkit. It is, at once, a critical goal for it calls upon the very core of the Christian gospel, and a goal that requires prayerful, conscious and faithful action.
The 2017 is the Third Edition of this amazing resource, and is a tool we use again and again in helping equip churches to make the journey to becoming More Light. It addresses so many of the topics that often arise during the process.
