Building Family Among Senior Populations

Thursday, January 31, 2013 - 8:30am

As Baby Boomers face their own issues with aging, caring for the needs of their parents bring its own unique challenge. What are the ways that congregations can best provide care and community for these “pillars” of the church? While heterosexual contemporaries may have children or other family units to provide support in later years, what happens to the LGBT individuals who have been estranged from their family? Hear stories of hope and challenge from members of the senior community and those who provide services for them.

Beyond Bashing: A Faith Response to End Anti-LGBT Violence

Friday, February 8, 2013 - 7:00pm to Sunday, February 10, 2013 - 12:15pm

Hate crimes based on sexual orientation account for 20% of all hate crimes reported to the FBI in recent years and violence against the transgender community continues at an appalling rate as well. We know that anti-gay religious voices contribute to creating a climate that allows these terrifying crimes to continue at high rates. Many faith leaders, however, are firm in our commitment that all people deserve to live in safety and freedom and that violence is never the appropriate response to our differences.

Thursday, November 1, 2012 (All day) to Saturday, November 3, 2012 (All day)

Mudd Building, Pacific School of Religion, 1798 Scenic Avenue, Berkeley

The theme of this year’s summit is Creating Space for Social Justice. Securing human dignity for others and ourselves is not just a laudable goal, but a necessary part of our expression of faith. Our faith communities must be educated and inspired to embrace the inclusion and affirmation of our transgender, queer, intersex, transsexual and gender non-conforming members. This is the rallying call for the CLGS Transgender Religious Leaders Summit 2012.
