RIC Process

On March 16, Nativity Council approved the formation of a small group (Core Team) to begin leading Nativity through the Reconciling in Christ (RIC) Program; a program of ReconcilingWorks. The RIC Program is a way for faith communities to ensure the welcome, inclusion, celebration, and advocacy for people of all sexual orientations, gender identities, and gender expressions in the Lutheran church.

The RIC journey is an intentional and extensive process of transparency, education, dialogue, learning, and growing led by a Core Team. Meet the members of Nativity’s RIC Core Team by clicking on the video links below, and hear their experiences with the RIC initiative.
