Inclusion: A Faith Panel Discussion

7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Glencoe Public Library
Forte Reference Room

“Inclusion” is defined as the action or state of including or of being included within a group or structure. What does it mean when inclusion intersects with our places of faith? How do we tolerate or even celebrate those who may be different? How does one help “move the needle” to advance inclusion? Faith leaders of Glencoe will discuss inclusion and its various symbols, expressions, and barriers.

The panelists will include Daphne Cody (St. Elisabeth’s Church), David Wood (Glencoe Union Church), Dwayne Gary (St. Paul AME), Barbara Javore (North Shore United Methodist), and Lisa Greene (North Shore Congregation Israel).
