Did you struggle to decide whether to attend Trinity or Central for worship? 

(Those of us online can toggle back and forth!) 

Liturgist Kelly Sherman-Conroy shared this poem by Poet Laureate Joy Harjo today at the outset of worship.

And happily, quite a few of the preachers also led workshops so there were multiple opportunities to hear from everyone. 

Nadia Bolz-Weber

Anna Carter Florence

In his lecture, Frank Thomas referenced the book Desiring Whiteness: A Lacanian Analysis of Race by Kalpana Seshradi-Crooks, in case you didn’t catch the title! 

“It’s the forgiving that gets Jesus killed.” – David Lose

Theologian Deanna Thompson lectured about the Post-Traumatic Public Theology project, sharing multiple books and references in her slides. 

The Many closed out the evening with a worship gathering.
