MESSAGE DU PRÉSIDENT

Je suis quelqu'un qui observe les gens. C'est une vraie confession. Pas dans le sens du harcèlement moral. Je trouve simplement les gens fascinants. J'aime apprendre à les connaître, mais j'observe aussi les gens dans un contexte social, leurs interactions et leurs réactions. Je pense que c'est peut-être un héritage allemand. Certains parmi vous ont peut-être vu des maisons dans de petits villages allemands. La maison est presque au bord de la rue, et au deuxième ou troisième étage une fenêtre est ouverte, et vous pouvez voir une femme ou un homme âgé, debout, assis ou penché par la fenêtre, qui regarde le monde qui passe.

What do you do as President?
I represent SDA Kinship in dealing with other corporations and businesses, including the signing of contracts. I also sit in an ex officio capacity, without a vote, on all committees except the Nominating Committee. I coordinate and chair membership meetings, Board meetings, and Executive Committee meetings. I maintain communication with the Board between meetings. I report regularly to the membership. I submit to the Board an annual work plan identifying the specific activities and collaborative ventures to be carried out during the forthcoming fiscal year.

The UnClobber Outreach Project in 2021

UnClobber tells of the personal journey of Pastor Colby Martin as he researches the Bible’s six “clobber texts”—the only places in Scripture that might plausibly address sexual orientation—and comes to a new understanding of how the church can relate to members of the LGBTQIA+ community from a biblical and compassionate framework. Pastor Colby isn't the first to learn this, but his story and biblical interpretation communicates the message in a deep, balanced, and accessible way.

NEW! KINSHIP LOCAL WISDOM SERIES

Do you sometimes feel like a linguistic Neanderthal? Are you confused by the terms post-sexual, non-binary, two-spirit, demisexual, and cisgender? Are you old enough that you once thought gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transsexual were four words that covered all the continuum? Would you like to talk about it in a safe place where we will not think we are stupid, be angry with ourselves while we learn, and yet want to know more about the people who form our community? This chat is for you.

Date: December 12, 2021
Time: 7 PM EST (USA)

NOUVEAU VICE-PRÉSIDENT PAR INTERIM

I am happy to announce that we have appointed a new interim Vice President to fill my previous role before being elected as President. After deep consideration, the Kinship Board is excited that Catherine Taylor has agreed to serve out the current term of Vice President. Catherine is certainly no stranger to SDA Kinship and has been connected with the organization since 1981 and has served in numerous capacities through the years. She has a passion for people and their stories. Among many other contributions, she was the Connection editor for more than 12 years and led the Building Safe Places project for several years. I believe that Catherine will be a very positive addition to the Kinship Leadership Team. Please stay tuned for additional projects and important changes we will be making to the organization to make it even more appealing and relevant to those who need its message today. We will feature Catherine and other Board members in upcoming media.
