FROM THE INCLUSION TEAM

The Inclusion Team is working on the following 4 projects and will meet on July 9. If any of the following projects are of interest to you please contact Gail Carlson.

  1. Creating a discussion guide for the book Mad Honey written by Jennifer Finney Boylan and Jodi Picoult. The guide will be used for a future book study at The Oasis 
  2. Establishing and maintaining a lending library of books related to inclusion and diversity. 
  3. Working with Rev. Rushan to plan an inclusion/diversity focused worship service on a quarterly basis.  Since June is Pride Month, the first service is tentatively being planned for June 25. 
  4. Increasing our community involvement in inclusion and diversity issues. This might include such efforts as creating a pamphlet, identifying organizations we can partner with, sponsoring the showing of a film, offering a program for parents, grandparents and allies of LGBTQ+ individuals or other ideas generated by the team.



INCLUSION TEAM WISH LIST

The inclusion team is setting up a small lending library and we have a wish list.

  • A small side table
  • A table or floor lamp
  • A small rug
  • A couple of comfortable chairs 
  • And of course books that focus on inclusion, diversity and supporting LGBTQ+  individuals and their families
