EXAMINING FAITH: THE INCLUSION OF THE SPIRITUALLY TRAUMATIZED LGBTQ BELIEVER OF COLOR IN AFFIRMING AND INCLUSIVE MINISTRIES
L. Covington (New York Theological Seminary)

Research Interest Group. [Paper] The main purpose of this presentation is to discuss the intersectionality of the emotional, psychological and spiritual damage sustained by LGBTQ Faith Believers of Color due to societal, familial, and religious influences. We will also examine how Religious Education can be utilized in understanding the lived experience of the LGBTQ Believer of Color and healing faith trauma within said community.


Addressing the Sex Abuse Crisis in Communities of Faith and Learning
Carl Procario-Foley (Iona College)

Research Interest Group. [Paper] This paper argues that educational communities of faith and learning (e.g. Catholic colleges) are especially primed to face into the pain and reality of the sex abuse crisis in the Catholic Church in honest and constructive ways. It recommends that religious educators and mental health professionals collaborate strategically and carefully to offer spaces that are both educational and healing for people to discuss the causes and impacts of the crisis. A pedagogy of open and dangerous memory is needed to attend to the real impacts of the crisis and to promote empathy for survivors.
