GLBTQ Persons and the Bible in the 21st Century - Final Session

This is the final week!
What does the Bible say about sexualities? Is there really a prohibition for GLBTQ persons?

The debate continues for some while others have their mind made up. Yet if you want to be part of an affirming and truly engaging conversation on sexualities and spiritualities, this is a great series to attend.

Yes, this is a look at the religious traditions that inform Christianity, including the Bible, church tradition, and culture.

In 4 Weeks we will cover sexualities in the Bible, look at specific portions of the Old Testament, New Testament, ancient Jewish, Greek, Roman, and modern culture, and even the development of the word "homosexual" over 150 years ago.

The group is free, materials are provided, and donations are accepted. There will be presentation of information and plenty of small group discussion. Anyone interested in sexuality, orientation, faith, spirituality, or only curious are welcome to attend.

Please RSVP so we can have enough materials!

The meeting will be in the Sanctuary of United Church of Rogers Park, 1545 W. Morse Ave, Chicago, IL. Enter on Ashland, parking is across the street at Ashland and Morse.
