“Building Community” with Khara House

ALL ARE WELCOME! You BELONG at Beacon – Spiritually open and intentionally inclusive since 1958.  What does it mean to belong? At its heart, the Lived Black Experience Project seeks to answer that question by shining light on the invisible peoples, places, spaces, and stories of people in Flagstaff in order to form a more inclusive narrative about what it truly means to be a community. This talk will focus on the importance of creating a narrative that recognizes a wider range of people who are part of our community in order to foster the feeling that all are part of, rather than apart from, our broader community. By creating places and spaces for all, we recognize Flagstaff’s community history, celebrate present progress, and cultivate a better future. Khara House preaching with Nancy Paxton, Worship Associate. Music by George Murphy, Paul Beier, and Kim Angelo with Simon Cunningham, accompanist.

Khara House currently serves as a Flagstaff City Councilmember. She is the Secretary for the Lived Black Experience Project and serves on both its steering committee and the board of the Southside Community Association.
