…that is what has been enriching for me, to have people from a wide spectrum to indeed have a voice in what is happening here…”

I have to always speak from my own place which is white, female, and privileged…For all of us, regardless of what that “place” is, we need to take inventory of how this situation impacts us and also implicates us…”

It’s really a controversy about how to read Scripture.”

Gordon Mikoski, associate professor of Christian education

As a trustee I wonder as we think about our history, as we look at the present and plan for the future what does that mean in terms of thinking about our strategic planning, the work that we do, and how do we reconcile the exclusions that have happened throughout history?”
