Description

Woven Together: Stories of Dissonance, Sacrifice, and Liberation

Ruth and Naomi’s lives were woven together in a season of despair and displacement. Environmental trauma, poverty, forced migration, food insecurity, personal vulnerability, and power differentials continue to shape our shared human experience now as it did then. God interlaced the threads of Ruth and Naomi's individual stories, each with unique messiness and unpredictability. Through God’s weaving, these women learned mutual sacrifice, found healing community, and shared liberation. Our threads - our stories - are made to be woven together on God’s sacred loom; each thread, unique and complex, spun out of God’s grace and love. Our call is to recognize the value of each thread in all its complexity, each thread's necessity to God’s design, and our lifetime commitment to the work of freedom and faith.

For all of the details, including information on our speakers, schedule, and workshops, please visit our website.



LOCATION INFORMATION

The conference plenary will be hosted by Seattle First Presbyterian Church. Workshops and sleeping rooms will be at the Renaissance Seattle Hotel, across the street from the church.

Please visit our website for more information, including how to make a hotel room reservation.



PRICING INFORMATION

NEXT Church believes strengthening connections across the PCUSA is of significant importance. Therefore, your presence at the National Gathering is of high value to us and we do not want registration cost to be a barrier. Recognizing that different folks will cover the cost of the Gathering in different ways, we have created a sliding scale for registration. Please read the descriptions of each ticket and choose the level that is right for you. While we need to cover our costs, the spirit of this sliding scale is to make it possible for you to come and be part of this work, so sign up at the rate that makes your presence possible. If your budget allows for a ticket somewhere between our Connector and Sustainer levels, please consider making a donation to NEXT Church with the remaining funds so that we can offset the cost for others.

By registering for this event, you give NEXT Church permission to take your photo and use it in publications and online.
