In May of 2018, Redeemer, in partnership with Grace Northeast, Westwood, Edina Community and St. Michael's Lutheran Churches & Reconciling Works, presented
PROPHETIC: Amplifying Queer & Colorful Voices.
Over a Friday and Saturday, the cohort hosted three main events featuring renowned queer Christian singer-songwriter & activist Jennifer Knapp and queer leaders of color from the Twin Cities area to explore through art & community what it means for Redeemer to live faithfully and fully at the intersections of Racial and LGBTQIA+ justice and equity.
A special thanks to our phenomenal line-up of queer and black artists and leaders who lent their voices and experience to make this weekend so powerful: Jennifer Knapp, Nikole Mitchell, Taylor Seaberg, Austen Hartke, Rev. Jen Nagel,
Zed Jensen, Katherine Parent, Soul Beautiful, and Jibreel Khumas.
We'll be posting podcasts from Saturday's workshops soon!
