From the Breaking Down Barriers Study Committee
The Breaking Down Barriers Study Committee was asked by the delegates of the 2022 Annual Conference of the Church of the Brethren to explore how we gather and how we might create greater equity in access, so that we can include as many people as possible in Annual Conference and other church gatherings. We are studying existing theological, technological, and practical barriers. We are also gathering information about creative and helpful solutions to help us overcome those barriers.
We want to hear from as many corners of our denomination as possible to help us in this study. We would appreciate your participation in this short survey to help us in that effort: www.surveymonkey.com/r/breaking-down-barriers.
Your feedback is crucial as we continue to face the practical and spiritual realities in these ever-changing times, while remaining excited, hopeful, and open to God’s leading for our denomination. Please respond before Jan. 31. Also, feel free to forward this survey to any others you know who would be interested in participating.
— The Breaking Down Barriers Study Committee includes Jeanne Davies, Brandon Grady, and Dan Poole. Find out more about the Church of the Brethren Annual Conference at www.brethren.org/ac.
