    ONA Anniversary Workshop

    Greenwood Room

    “Minding the Margins”

    A workshop experience with Dr. Jeffrey McCune.

    When invited to work with Plymouth on celebrating 25 years of Open & Affirming and helping us to look towards the future, Dr. McCune created a workshop and preaching experience that will have us all “Minding the Margins”–i.e. thinking critically about how we extend our open and affirming welcome to ALL people–especially those who have been marginalized.

    In Dr. McCune’s words, “This experience will attend to non-marginalized populations, interrogating ritual, privilege, and self-interest as obstacles in creating an “open and affirming” environment to all. Most importantly, this experience will begin critical conversations which help generate better practices for attending to issues of wherein folks can engage conversations and commitment to diversity, with greater ease and knowledge.”
