Can I Be Gay And Still Be Spiritual?

June 19, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am
Free

6/19/2018
12:00 PM – 1:00 PM
Gulfport Public Library
Frances Purdy Friends Meeting Room

Often the faith community and the gay community have been at odds with each other… but they don’t have to be. A panel of local faith leaders from the Interfaith Tampa Bay Pride Worship Service (Thursday, June 21), including both Christian and non-Christian viewpoints, will give short presentations about how their faith traditions are working to make themselves more open and accepting to LGBTQ seekers.

Since many traditions say we are made in God’s image, does that mean God can be gay too? What does it really mean that Jesus never even mentioned homosexuality?  How does being gay affect the quest for enlightenment in non-Western traditions?  These and other provocative topics will be covered and there will be time for a Q&A too.  Come enjoy a great “lunch and learn” program… feel free to bring your own lunch with you!
