Join Pastor Lauren Gully as we look at three short films (shown online during the class) and discuss how Jesus opens up the doors of the Sanctuary from the prospective of the influential writer, Rachel Held Evans.

Rachel, in her work, opened a space for people to become involved with the evolution of their faith by example. Her books and gatherings created a safe space for people to allow and examine their beliefs and doubts. She was a voice of inclusion and social justice. She strove to be grace-filled while admitting her imperfection. Her advocation was for the heart of God which is for the people of God. She inspired change and sometimes provoked resistance. But as she says in this series, her hope was to start more conversations than end them. So let’s begin the conversation!
