An interactive, engaged workshop for clergy in South Dakota.
April 25, 2017, Our Savior’s Lutheran Church, Sioux Falls
Ally-ship Answers Action
Join South Dakota Faith in Public Life and clergy from across the state to explore the theme “Love Your Neighbor. No Exceptions.” We will meet and work together to find ways to apply Jesus’ command to love our neighbors as ourselves during a time when local communities and our nation are struggling with disagreements about immigration, refugee resettlement, and the experiences of minority communities. This all-day workshop (9am-3pm) will help leaders of religious communities explore what it means to engage in work as allies and good Samaritans in today’s divided world. Participants will leave the workshop with stories and experiences that will help them speak lovingly and respectfully on these difficult issues, to lead discussions in adult and youth religious education, and to consider other ways of acting as allies to vulnerable SD communities.
Travel funding (gas, lodging) is available for participants. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
