This Is My Story, This is My Song: Conversation, Story & Songs for the Hope of Co-creating Beloved Community
October 14, 2021
November 27, 2021 at 9:30 am (MST)
Guest Panelists: The Rev. Calvin Hill and The Rev. Kelly Murdock-Billy
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 marginalized voices within the MSC 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. This panel conversation will be on Saturday, November 27th from 9:30 am to 10:45 am, in observance of National American Indian Heritage Month.
