Ellie Krug
Monday, September 27
6:30 p.m. in the Chapel
Our guest speaker, Ellie Krug, will speak about Gray Area Thinking: How to Welcome and Accept Diverse Humans. She will talk about inclusivity, empathy,  and compassion as well as difference. How can we better connect across commonality and difference?  She recently spoke with the WCC Saturday Seekers group; they enthusiastically asked her to return. As a transgender woman, she has a deep understanding of how to welcome all and how to build trusting relationships across difference.
