Documentary: A Welcoming Space: The Story of Room for All
“This is the story of Room for All‘s journey from a handful of people who believed in 2005 that God’s love embraces people of all sexual identities and gender expressions, to a flourishing network working for LGBTQ inclusion in the RCA.
We made this film because we’re not there yet. There are voices for full LGBTQ affirmation resounding within the church, to be sure. “A Welcoming Space” features some of them, along with the witness of Christ-followers whom the church has sought to exclude. In doing so, the film also represents the silent voices, those countless LGBTQ people in the RCA who, throughout their lifetimes, never dared to publicly claim their belovedness as children of God.”
