The world, nations, and the denomination need to hear what SFTS practices and amplifies: an embrace of racial and gender diversity, interfaith acceptance, and evolving understanding of Christian theology. That’s why I continue to be involved with my time and talents to further the growth and evolution of this most important institution.
