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. Rachel Becker-Warner has been part of Nativity’s RIC Core Team. In this video, she shares her experience with the RIC initiative and answers the question “What is gender identity?”.
