Open and Affirming educational forum Aug. 7

Our Open and Affirming working group is planning several educational forums to help us move into a more intentional welcome of the LGBT community. The first will be Sunday, Aug. 7, following worship, from 10:45 to 11:30 a.m. in the Gathering Room.

Pastor Anne Swallow Gillis, Dave Hill and Rachel Flaherty will lead a session on “What does the Bible say about LGBT?” What about those Bible verses that seem so anti-gay? Come and equip yourself for those challenging conversations with family or co-workers. Find out what the Bible really has to say about issues of sexual orientation and gender identity.
