In John 13:34 Jesus states “and now I give you a new commandment: love one another as I have loved you, so you must love one another”.

A rainbow spectrum appearing on the palm of a hand. As children of God through our thoughts and actions each of us strive to exemplify what Jesus wants each of us to do – Love one another!  One way to put these words into action is becoming an Affirming Region. At the Living Skies Regional Council Gathering in 2019, a proposal was presented and carried that an Affirming Process Task Group be created. This group has been asked to design and to propose a process through which our Regional Council might consider becoming an Affirming Region. When completed, we will present our report and proposal on becoming an Affirming Regional Council at the Living Skies Regional Council gathering,

This Task Group consists of Joy Cowan, Bob Hayes, Allison Sarauer, Yoonjoo Shin, Shelly Manley-Tannis, Tony Thompson, Jackie van’t Voort, and Julie Graham as staff support.

We will provide updates on this exciting journey!
