I think incredible moments of transformation and connection are only possible through proximity and relationships. But let's be honest -- the most inclusive spaces to gather in America are often aesthetically uninviting, falling apart, and frankly... uninspiring.
I bring my eclectic group of friends (think: experts on racial reconciliation and inclusion, musicians, artists, designers, rabbis, athletes, comedians, actors, pastors, drag queens -- you know, typical church folk) along for the ride to move us from a D.I.Y. culture to a D.I.T. culture -- Do It Together. No church storage closet is left unturned as we restore, renew, and reconcile. We're talking Queer Eye meets Marie Kondo meets the Vicar of Dibley. (If Chip and Jo want to come too, I won't object.)
I imagine a world where "churches", once the most segregated spaces in America, can become our most connected and inclusive spaces. Spaces where inclusion isn't just a catchphrase or a tag line, but a way of life. I imagine spaces that welcome people into proximity with one another with such authenticity, that we can never go back to the way things were before.
