What does it feel like if you have to choose between known or love?
It’s the situation many LGBTQA+ Christians find themselves in.
Some are afraid they will be known, but not loved.
Or they are offered loved but are not known.
Wellspring Café on Monday, June 2, To be Known and Loved: Sexuality and Gender, provides a space to consider how the Church responds to LGBTQ+ people. We hear part of Justin Lee’s personal story wrestling with his faith and identity in a Christian community. Justin Lee is the author of Torn: Rescuing the Gospel from the Gay vs. Christians Debate. For 25 years, he has been teaching people how to bridge cultural divides.
Faith and the Presbyterian Church are committed to being inclusive and welcome. Yet, there is misunderstanding and disagreement around issues of sexuality and gender. Wellspring Café is a place to learn, listen, share and connect.
Jesus said the Church would be known by the love we have for one another.
How can we know and love others better – with fuller knowledge?
