Clergy Lunches

We hold regular lunches and other events for clergy in Northern Virginia, Richmond, and Tidewater to provide a forum to discuss pastoral issues involving sexuality, inclusion, and related topics.  We're also eager to have events in other parts of Virginia as well! Just ask us!

Past lunches have addressed topics including responding to youth concerned about issues of sexuality, welcoming and ministering to families with members who are transgender, and the effects on families of the Supreme Court decisions in 2013 relating to marriage equality. 

Look for more information here about upcoming opportunities to learn and engage colleagues about these important issues to your congregation and community!
