Information about our speaker J.J. Warren:
     J.J. is a seminary student at Boston University School of Theology, a graduate of New York's Sarah Lawrence College, and a certified candidate for ordination in The United Methodist Church. After making impassioned plea for the inclusion of LGBTQ+ persons at the UMC's top law-making assembly, J.J.'s speech went viral, and his advocacy has been covered by HuffPost, NBC, and WXXI Radio.  His first book: Reclaiming Church: A Call to Action for Religious Rejects, will be available this February from Abingdon Press.  J.J. now travels the world preaching a message of inclusion and forward progress.  You can stay connected to his movement at jjwarren.org.
