From Norwood Session: re "Affirming”
Why is saying “all welcome” not enough?
Norwood Session plans to invite volunteers
to be part of a group to explore the process of
becoming an “Affirming” ministry within the United
Church, to confirm and explicitly express God’s call to be a community inclusive of people regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, ability, sexual orientation/identity and economic circumstance. Please speak with Rev. McLean for more information.
