      Gay Seminary Students to Join Forces and Battle Divisions

      "Called Out," the 11th national conference for lesbian, gay,
      bisexual, transgender and allied seminarians, will be held March 15-
      17 at McCormick Theological Seminary in Chicago, Illinois. Gathering

      around the theme "Militating �isms," conference participants will
      consider questions such as: What are the connections between sexism,
      racism, heterosexism and other �isms? How do people of faith
      participate in shoring up walls of separation rather than opening
      windows of understanding? What are the costs of being transformed
      into agents of unity?

      Conferees will spend time with these questions through worship,
      story-
      telling, song, workshops, laughter and prayer. Plenty of food and
      friendships will round out this transforming and connectional
      weekend, not to mention the welcoming accommodations of McCormick's
      guest housing.

      Featured speakers at the conference will be: Chris Glaser, gay author

      of several books concerning faith and sexuality; the Rev. Anita Hill,

      Lutheran minister who was ordained against official church policy;
      Ifti Nasim, gay Pakistani poet and activist; and the Rev. Dr.
      Thandeka, lesbian professor at Meadville Lombard Theological School.

      This March, you are invited to join seminarians from around the
      country in confronting the things that divide us, affirming the
      things that unite us, and in being affirmed and empowered as lesbian,

      gay, bisexual, transgender and allied people of faith.
