The Diversity Project at Como Park Lutheran Church is a multi-year initiative exploring what it means to live with your own identity and Christian calling amidst a diversity of languages, cultures, faiths, races, ethnicities, sexualities, gender-identities, differently-abled and differently-privileged people.
The main focus is the exploration race and sexual identity through discussion groups, book studies, Sunday adult forums, and public gatherings, but all aspects of identity, privilege and how they interconnect will be touched upon, along with the question, “What manner of welcome, embrace, and relationships, is God calling us to today?”
Join us for the first offering of this group at Como Park Lutheran Church on six Thursday evenings, beginning March 2nd at 7:00 p.m. as we explore the LSS Resource, “And Who Is My Neighbor?”
