Iridesce: The Living Apology Project

In 2015, General Council 42 voted for a national project of story-sharing and dialogue with people affected by the Church's 1988 decision to not exclude gay and lesbian people from eligibility for ministry and membership. Iridesce: The Living Apology Project is the embodiment of of this vote. It is an invitation for story-sharing from before, during and after the 1988 decision. Over the past year, Aaron Miechkota has travelled across the church, gathering stories and created spaces for open sharing and vulnerability.
