“Making Room for All 2013” created far-reaching ripples. Participants took the time to pick up the phone, send an email, or make a contribution to express their gratitude that a 2-day conference in a local church in the middle of Michigan could so profoundly affect their understanding of God’s love in Jesus Christ for people of all sexual identities and gender expressions.

We can neither control nor predict the moving of the Spirit in the lives of LGBTQ people, families or allies who gathered last October, but we’re privileged to glimpse the Spirit’s evidence, give thanks for it, and do our best to follow with grace and faithfulness.

We have assembled various conference resources for your use, including video, audio and the opening and closing orders of worship. We hope that you’ll be blessed by them and encouraged to share with others what the Spirit is doing in the church.

Creating Together

This is the painting whose individual elements were created by participants in response to Room for All’s 2013 national conference, and then brought together and painted back into by Michigan artist Joel Schoon-Tanis. The original canvas now belongs to Hope Church of Holland, MI, but you can still purchase a print or gallery-type canvas of the original painting, and/or note cards, a mug, glass cutting board, mouse pad, key chain, luggage tag, coaster, magnet or jigsaw puzzle…

These products are all available with various sizes, mounting and finishing options through Lake Effect Digital Imaging in Holland, MI. Here is a catalog and price list, (may be outdated) but orders can only be placed by calling Vicki at Lake Effect (see the contact information on the first page of the catalog). She’s very helpful and will answer all your questions. Thanks to Joel Schoon-Tanis, these products will be available at artist’s discount prices, with no mark-up or proceeds to RfA. This opportunity is ongoing!
