Launching my book Beloved: Being Gay and Christian
I am excited to be launching my newest book about what it’s like to be both gay and Christian! I’ll be reading portions of the book, connecting it with scripture (this is a worship service, after all!) and will be selling copies of the book and signing them after the worship service. All are welcome, either live or via zoom.
Tuesday, November 29 and December 6 and 13, 2022. Choose your time: 9-10a.m. or 1-2p.m. (3 sessions each time).
The Bible and Homosexuality for Progressive Christians
Based on his book The Bible and Homosexuality for Progressive Christians, Donald will lead a three-part conversation about some of the things the Bible says – and doesn’t say – about homosexuality. Key will be a recognition that the Bible never actually talks about homosexuality as an orientation, but only about homosexual behavior, which it sees as an aberration for heterosexuals. Thus, reading this book 2,000 years after it was written how relevant is it? What are some of the things it says about gay behavior and relationships? And what are some of the positive passages about homosexuals that we find there?
Note: registration is limited to 24 participants. Each of the three classes will deal with 2 sessions of the book. While you do not need a copy of the book to take the class, you will find it helpful. Copies are available here.
