The Open Church is a sacred place where those who are hurting, confused, and in need can find healing and hope, regardless of color, culture, or creed.
It is a wide place where “Abraham’s family” – Christians, Jews, and Muslims – can dialogue with Buddhists and Bahá’is and where Hindus can dialogue with Humanists.
The Open Church is a joyful place where children, seniors, migrant workers, people experiencing homelessness, and scholars eagerly learn from and teach one another.
It is a safe place where varied ethnicities and capabilities, genders and sexual identities, social and economic groups gather in peace to break bread at Christ’s Communion Table, as we break down stereotypes.
As sacred siblings born to our Heavenly Father who is Divine Mother of us all, we practice radically inclusive love that proclaims and builds up the “kin-dom of God.”
Historically, mental health has been a taboo topic in sacred spaces and in the African American community. However, The Open Church wants to turn that idea upside down. Every Thursday in August, we are offering a discussion about mental health. Each week will be led by one of TOC's mental health and public health professionals, Dr. Donna Shannon, Dr. Kamala Via, Dr. David Goode-Cross, and Dr. Lorece Edwards.
