"What happens if we just cleaned the slate?” Sara Shisler Goff asked, describing the origins and mission of the Slate Project. “What if we had a blank slate for being and doing church?”

“We know slate is formed, pressed, and made over time. We’re not trying to ignore that,” Jenn DiFrancesco said, referring to the richness of church theology, history, and tradition.

Goff picked up the thread: “We just need to identify what should be cleaned off. We just need to name it. Every day, every minute, we can clean off the slate.”
