Queer the Church

Saturday, 10:00am | Lecture Hall

This session will lead conversation about the new and the non-normative in Christianity. After a quick introduction, we’ll talk in small groups about what “”queer”” is, and how queering the church is a way forward into the future of Christianity. We’ll hold attentiveness that what is “”queer”” for some contexts is normative for others, and share across experiences to find ways to push into productive disruption engaging bodies and ideas beyond the normative.

Chris Davies

Chris S. Davies is the curator of Queer Clergy Trading Cards. She currently works for the United Church of Christ and is the point person for Congregational Assessment, Support, and Advancement at the National offices. Chris is a local beer enthusiast, creative queer liturgist, and dreamer beyond the normative church. She is a Connecticut native, a Cleveland transplant, and a wandering Irish Rover at heart. This project is a project of revolutionary love, bringing visibility to queer clergy, using humor and irreverence to help change the conversation to highlight common awe (and absurdities) in faith work. The project tells the stories of what oft is an isolating experience, and invites community beyond denomination. Chris loves Jesus and church deeply, and wants to help vision how we can transform the world, for the sake of the Gospel.
