Documentary: A Welcoming Space: The Story of Room for All

 Video Description:

“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.

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.”

"Notes from an Aspiring Humanitarian" is my blog, where I write about issues of diversity, inclusion, equity, and social justice. By exploring social identities through written word, film & video, and other forms of media, I hope to continue to expand and enrich conversations about social issues that face our society, and to find ways to take social action while encouraging others to do so as well in their own ways.
