Souls A’Fire: A Gathering for Black Queer Theology

March 13, 2021 - March 14, 2021 All day

March 13-14, 2021, United is honored to join with The Center for LGBTQ and Gender Studies in Religion’s African-American Roundtable to host the seventh Souls A’ Fire Conference focused on the next generation of Black Queer Theology.  We are continuing the rich tradition of encouraging young scholars in their current work as well as learning from seasoned theologians and preachers as they explore the intersections of African-American culture, the church and LGBTQ identity.  It also promises to be a time of retreat and inspiration through ritual, praise, and worship. United student Sam Carwyn will be one of the presenters. Saturday’s program will run from 11 am – 4 pm CT; Sunday’s worship will begin at 10 am CT. All are welcome; registration is free of charge. More information and registration are available at http://soulsafire.org/.
