Faith and Social Justice Retreat Opportunity in Michigan

And not just for Michiganders, but people who could travel easily to the west side of Michigan for a wonderful retreat opportunity October 19th-21st. I am SOOOO looking forward to this!

I quote from the flier:

The Together in Faith Collaborative brings LGBTQ, Same Gender Loving People and Straight Allies of all ages, races, religions and spiritualities together in Michigan to make sustainable changes within Michigan. It is an opportunity for skill development, community and team building.

I know that some of the programming being offered includes SGL [Same Gender Loving] & LGBTQ In Religion/Spirituality 101, and Creating Welcoming & Affirming Congregations. Beyond LGBT issues, there's training offered regarding Inclusive Language in Faith Settings.

The Collaborative is an intimate atmosphere, open to less than 50 participants, and provides both a retreat and reflective atmosphere for clergy, lay leaders, activists and organizers to rejuvenate and restore themselves and their spiritual connections.

Because the American Friends Service Committee, The Faith Action Network and the Arcus Foundation who supports the TIF Collaborative, believe in this work and this community, we have done everything in our power to make it accessible to all LGBTQA and Same Gender Loving communities. The sliding scale fee is $25 – $175 and covers all lodging, food and activities for the weekend starting Friday evening at 7pm and continuing until Sunday at 1pm. We are happy to assist with car pooling or ride shares as well.
