Lake Logan Conference Center will host a two-day retreat, “Living the Way of Love: Courageous Conversations About Diversity,” Feb. 7 – 9.
Participants will examine their own attitudes about the continuum of diversity, inclusion, equity and belonging as wekk as the role faith plays in it all.
Meet people with differing backgrounds and viewpoints. Generate open, honest, and frank dialogue at the retreat and a desire to continue the conversation after the weekend.
Understand relationship between diversity, inequality, socio-economic-political power, and faith. Identify and incorporate changes in communication which promote inclusion.
Leave with a clear individual action plan for “what next?” in one’s own life and for churches.
The retreat facilitator is Oman Frame, a sociology teacher and Coordinator of Equity and Inclusion at the Paideia School in Atlanta, Georgia, and author of Let’s Get Real: Exploring Race, Class, and Gender Identities in the Classroom. Frame uses an engaging and interactive presentation style.
Be prepared to participate. Frame will be joined by a panel on Saturday afternoon.
Attention vestry and clergy: this retreat will count as credit for attending Dismantling Racism in the Episcopal Diocese of WNC.
Subsidized rates are available to help ensure this retreat is accessible for all. Student and subsidized rates are on an honor system and are made possible by the generosity of our donors. Lodging and commuter rates are available.
