Beloved Conversations—the signature offering of The Fahs Collaborative at Meadville Lombard Theological School—is a program for Unitarian Universalists seeking to embody racial justice as a spiritual practice. In Beloved Conversations, we are here to heal the impact of racism on our lives, in order to get free together. 

The Beloved Conversations program is split into three sections, within, among, and beyond. 

WITHIN is focused on the individual, personal work we each need to do

AMONG is focused on institutional, systemic change needed in our congregations

BEYOND is focused on work outside our congregations, with our local communities


The Beloved Conversations Team was formed from participants in the 2020-2022 Course and includes: Tim Dawson, Janie Elliott, Jennifer McGlothin, Pat Murray, Carol Slomski, Cori Vipperman with support from our coach, Rev. Erin Walter.

To contact the BC Team, email Jen McGlothin.
