Keynote Speaker

Our guest speaker this year will be Heidi Kim, Staff Officer for Racial Reconciliation of The Episcopal Church. Heidi is responsible for facilitating the establishment and growth of networks in the Church that confront structural issues of racism in society and the church. She was part of the core team of staff to support the development of TEC's "Becoming Beloved Community" long-term strategic commitment for racial healing, reconciliation, and justice-making, and travels throughout the church to share the vision and best practices of the Beloved Community work.

Heidi's approach is grounded in the church’s mission to "restore all people to unity with God and each other in Christ.” She believes that true reconciliation involves lovingly embracing the vast diversity of background, belief, and experience found in the church and the world, and finding the resilience to love in the face of difference and conflict. Heidi likes to say that being in right relationship needs to be more important than being right.
