Advent Bible Study begins on December 4
Pastor Richard begins a new, two-week Advent Bible Study on Wednesday, December 4. From the birth narratives of the gospels and selected Old Testament passages, Pastor Richard will share how these familiar stories can take on new life and meaning in our lives and church. Learn how the story of Jesus’ birth proclaims good news to all, reveals the clash of imperial and heavenly values, and promises a world of hope and peace.
When is Gay Christian 101 going to be taught again? Spring 2020
Pastor Richard teaches Gay Christian 101 twice a year, usually in the spring and fall.
Unclobber the biblical clobber passages. Discover God's extravagant and inclusive welcome to all. Over the period of six weeks, Pastor Richard discusses the six “clobber” passages that are often used to oppress LGBTQ people. Then the class focuses on the positive Scriptures and role models for LGBTQ Christians. Gay Christian 101 has been spiritually liberating to many, including family members and straight allies of LGBTQ folks. For visitors, the Wednesday night class allows people to attend while keeping their commitments to their home church on Sundays.
