This Is My Story, This is My Song: Conversation, Story & Songs for the Hope of Co-creating Beloved Community
Using inspiration from some of the Heritage/History Months observed in the United States and the hymn “Blessed Assurance” from Fanny Crosby and Phoebe Knapp, the purpose of this panel conversation series is to amplify Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) and historically underrepresented voices and to offer space for attendees to engage in deep listening and learning.
The conversation will include personal stories, a discussion on what Beloved Community means within our communities and the UMC, and how we are called and can participate in co-creating that Beloved Community as disciples of Jesus Christ. Guest speakers will also end by sharing songs and hymns that have been meaningful to them. All panel conversations will be on Saturdays from 9:30 am to 10:45 am, starting with Feb. 27 in observance of Black History Month.
