Recently, three of our Franconia Conference members took part in Hope for the Future, an MCUSA gathering of leaders of color from across the church. These gatherings are designed to explore the ways that power, privilege, cultural bias and racism function in our denomination. As Franconia Conference continues to strive to be intercultural and give all people leadership opportunities, this event provides a way for our conference to speak into the denomination and also to gain resources to help equip our leaders.
Colleen Brockington, member of Norristown New Life Nueva Vida Mennonite Church attended the most recent Hope for the Future gathering. Read more about her experience at the event here: https://themennonite.org/questions-and-concerns-determination-and-confidence/
