Guest speaker, The Very Reverend Katherine Hancock Ragsdale, President and Dean of EDS


The Very Rev. Katherine Hancock Ragsdale, President and Dean of EDS  will be coming to Grace on Sunday to lead the GDG discussion group and preach. President Ragsdale is well known for her work on abortion rights, public policy affecting women, and the intersection of faith and public policy. She is widely sought as a speaker on issues of professional ethics, public policy affecting women, and lesbian/gay rights.  We are looking forward to her being with us and facilitating a discussion about "readiness".  Readiness to stretch ourselves, to welcome people different than ourselves and probing the question,   "What does "all are welcome" mean to us? " It should be an interactive and interesting discussion.  Please plan to attend! 
Mary Malagodi for the GDG Committee
