   Keynote Speaker - Heidi Kim

   

 Heidi Kim is Director of "Becoming Beloved Community", the Episcopal Church's long-term commitment to racial healing, reconciliation, and justice. Becoming Beloved Community represents not so much a set of programs as a journey, a set of interrelated commitments around which we as Episcopalians may organize our many efforts to respond to racial injustice and grow a community of reconcilers, justice-makers, and healers. It builds around four long-term commitments: 1) Telling the Truth, 2) Proclaiming the Dream, 3) Repairing the Breach, and 4) Practicing the Way of Love.


Music Leader - Ana Hernandez

Well known throughout The Episcopal Church, Ana writes of herself, "I am a composer/arranger, workshop facilitator, author, and mischief maker. I work with people to create beautiful liturgies in many different styles; from early music to contemplative, to drummy and participatory." Ana's focus these days is in leading and teaching music that brings people together through singing.
