Holding Space: A virtual space for LGBTQ+ UCC Clergy May

May 29, 2024 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm EST

Cost: Free. Donations accepted

Seeking connection with fellow licensed or ordained LGBTQ+ clergy? The Open and Affirming Coalition invites you to join our virtual support group, facilitated by Sarah Dundar, M.A., LPCC, a licensed clinical counselor specializing in spiritual and religious trauma. This informal and confidential space is designed for any licensed or ordained LGBTQ+ clergy to share experiences, challenges, and joys in leading their congregations. Any licensed or ordained LGBTQ+ clergy is welcome here regardless of your church’s Open and Affirming status. Sarah will guide the conversation and offer support as needed, fostering an atmosphere of understanding and camaraderie. Feel free to participate at your own comfort level, whether you want to share your journey or simply listen and learn from your colleagues. This is a drop-in format, allowing you to join for the entire session or just for a portion. While the support group is free, donations are accepted and appreciated to help sustain our efforts in providing this valuable resource. If you’re a LGBTQ+ licensed or ordained clergy attending a UCC church (even if it is not open and affirming), we encourage you to join us and be part of this empowering community. This is a time and space for you!
