Postcards from the Great Spiritual Migration
As more and more conservative evangelicals are transitioning to a more generous and spatious faith, progressive ministers are increasingly faced with the herculean task of assisting these pilgrims in their spiritual migrations. This presentation will offer the progressive minister both a conceptual roadmap of common mile markers to be expected and a bevy of resources to draw upon along the way. The session will also include a panel discussion/Q & R comprised of ministers who have made the transition and are currently active in helping others make a similar journey.

Bec Cranford

Bec Cranford is a self-identified Bapticostal misfit preacher* from Atlanta, Georgia. When she’s not hanging out with her dog Basil or painting, you can probably find her at the Gateway Center working to make homelessness brief and rare in the city. Or at Candler School of Theology, rocking her students’ socks off. Or, preaching, marrying folks, or sitting on her front porch with friends, having conversations about life, God, and everything in between. This year at the Goose, Bec’s happy to serve as Volunteer Coordinator and offer hospitality to everybody she meets.
