Press Release, 1997-FEB-14, "Called on the Journey: Sacred Spaces of our Lives."

Christian Lesbians Out (CLOUT), an international movement celebrating the miracle of being out, lesbian and Christian, will hold its 1997 Global Gathering in Portland, Oregon from Thursday, October 2 through Sunday, October 5. The theme for this 4th biennial conference and celebration is "Called on the Journey: Sacred Spaces of our Lives."

Attendees will be given opportunities to reflect on their life journeys as lesbian Christians / Christian lesbians by contemplating the sacred they have experienced -- whether or not they thought it so at the time. Women will also be challenged to examine how internalized homophobia, racism, denominational bias, and other structures have limited our ability to truly know ourselves, one another, and God. We will talk, sing, drum, laugh, do art, create rituals, and have an all-around great time.

The gathering will be held at a beautiful retreat center in the rolling hills between Portland and Mt. Hood. Conference housing varies from semi-private rooms to camping. Partial scholarships may be available through a newly established Fund for Overcoming Racism and Classism. Several exciting pre-gathering excursions around the region are planned so come early to see Mt. Hood, sample micro-brews, and tour the City of Roses!

Make plans now to attend this fall -- space is limited, and this weekend will be fantastic! Partial scholarships may be available.
