Spiritual Deepening & Fellowship - Believe Outloud: A Time to Seek, Part 2, What does Scripture Say?

Spiritual Deepening & Fellowship - Believe Outloud: A Time to Seek, Part 2, What does Scripture Say?

Believe Outloud: A Time to Seek, Part 2, What does Scripture Say? In this session, we will explore what the Bible really says about sexuality, gays and lesbians, and gender itself. Certain passages are often used as evidence of why homosexuality is a sin, but do we understand these Bible verses? We will explore the relationship of translation in our understanding of the Bible and how better understanding encourages us to welcome and love all people. We will use A Time to Seek, a book about faith, gender, and sexuality, as our guide for reading and discussion. More information about this resource can be found here: http://religiousinstitute.org/timetoseek/
