Kingsway-Lambton has begun exploring the steps to becoming an Affirming Church. Being affirming goes deeper than being welcoming. It means being public, intentional, and explicit (PIE), in our commitment to diversity and inclusion.
As part of this process, the Affirming Task Force will be running 3 educational events over the next 9 months so that the members of our church can learn what it means to be an Affirming Church and be prepared to vote on this issue early in 2024.
The first session will be held on June 11th at 11:30 am in the Club Room. The goal of this session will be to learn what affirming means. By watching a collection of videos and sharing our thoughts we hope you will get answers to questions such as the following, which will help all of us to be more understanding of each other:
* What does P.I.E. stand for and why is it important?
* What is the difference between Gender Identity and Gender Expression?
* What are the challenges faced by people of different sexual orientations and different gender identities?
We hope you can join us on June 11. Please contact Susan Culver firstname.lastname@example.org or Priscilla Knight email@example.com for more information.
