Our second season theme:
“Hope Without Wavering”
“Let’s hold on to the confession of our hope without wavering, because the one who made the promises is reliable. And let us consider each other carefully for the purpose of sparking love and good deeds.” — Hebrews 10:23-24 (CEB)
What is The Humble Gathering?
Now in its second season, The Humble Gathering is an ongoing series of virtual events, held the third Sunday evening of each month. Each event consists of a video presentation followed by an opportunity for participants to interact, in real time, with each other and the presenter using their computer or phone. Participants in The Humble Gathering pay a sliding-scale monthly fee; no one is turned away due to lack of funds.
The presentation events use basic technologies that are accessible to nearly everyone. If you have a way to watch a video and a phone, even a landline or a flip phone, you can participate! If you have an internet-connected computer with a webcam, all the better.
The Humble Gathering is designed to connect, support, educate, and celebrate Christian feminists from many traditions!
(Technical and Financial)
Our goal in creating The Humble Gathering is to make an online presentation series without boundaries. We’ve done our best to make the technology accessible, so no one finds themselves on the wrong side of a digital divide. There is special tech support available for those who need assistance. No internet? No problem. We’ll figure something out that works for you.
We are also committed to making sure that you can afford to attend The Humble Gathering events. There are different registration subscription options available: $25 (benefactor) to $15 (standard) to $10 (discount) and $5 (low income / student). Please get in touch if you have questions!
Donate to The Humble Gathering
Your donations help make sure that The Humble Gathering is accessible for everyone, our tech support workers have the tools they need to make participation easy for everyone, and our presenters are compensated for sharing their knowledge.
The Humble Gathering was created to replace the in-person CFT Gathering which was scheduled for July, 2020, in Cincinnati, Ohio, which was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We saw an opportunity to put something together that could still bring people together to learn and share in Christian feminist fellowship, and The Humble Gathering was born.
Date and Time
The presentations take place online at 8:30 pm Eastern (7:30 pm Central, 6:30 pm Mountain, and 5:30 pm Pacific) every third Sunday of the month.
Each usually begins with all participants watching a pre-recorded video on a private website. The video is pre-recorded to make it as easy as possible for members to access. When the video is over, we take a short break and then begin a live question and answer session via Zoom. The Q and A session lasts approximately 60 minutes.
What does my registration subscription include?
Your registration includes access to all presentation sessions (including the first season archive).
