Is it possible for Christians with deep theological differences on sexuality and gender identity to move toward one another with deeper compassion and joy? Hear how one group is living into this tension and what lessons they’ve learned along the way. Heidi Weaver- Smith, president/founder of LOVEboldly, will discuss the organizations’ efforts to host dialogues that cultivate courageous, productive conversations. She will share theological concepts that have shaped their work, practical tools and strategies that have helped explore reconciliation, and pitfalls and learning opportunities they have encountered. Attendees will discuss concepts and strategies that can inform reconciliation work in various contexts.
