This week: “Unafraid: Fear of Failure.”

LGBTQIA+ Listening and learning opportunities: The Wesley Church Council invites the entire Wesley community to be part of continued listening and learning as we discern together Wesley’s next steps as a community of faith. In August there are two opportunities with more coming in September:
August 11th: Showing of the movie Inlaws & Outlaws. Grab a plate at lunch and join us in the parlor for all or part of this 100-minute movie. Inlaws & Outlaws is a documentary that weaves together the true stories of couples and singles – both gay and straight – to create a collective narrative of stories of love, loss and belonging.
August 25th: Facilitated table conversations at lunch. During our community lunch, facilitators will be positioned at some of the tables to invite conversation around two questions: A) How has what you believe about LGBTQIA+ inclusion changed or been affirmed since childhood? B) What key encounters affirmed or changed your beliefs?
