The Synod’s Reconciling in Christ fall learning event is back! After a multi-year break due to covid, we are gathering again to learn how to show God’s love to our LGBTQIA+ siblings in Christ.

Carla Christopher (she/her/hers) is a poet-activist, cultural competency trainer, and ordained redevelopment/congregational vitality pastor in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) – one of the first out LGBTQ Black women ordained in her denomination. Carla was the 4th Poet Laureate of York, PA and has toured the globe as a performer, multiply published and award-winning author, public speaker, and workshop facilitator / trainer. She specializes in areas of creative writing and storytelling, community-based advocacy and activism, trauma-informed care and mindfulness, diversity, and cultural competency.

Carla currently serves as Assistant to the Bishop in Charge of Justice Ministries, Lower Susquehanna Synod (south central PA region) and on the pastoral teams for the digital ministry, Release Faith, and Heidelberg United Church of Christ in York, PA. She also writes regularly for Disrupt Worship, ELCA World Hunger, Sparkhouse, Sundays and Seasons and others.
