Embracing God’s Gifts – Scripture Study
February 18 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
This online program allows interested folks to gather in faith and dialogue around Sacred Scripture. The lens through which we will explore the Scriptures includes the lived experience of LGBTQ+ individuals, their loved ones, and allies.
Each month’s gathering will focus on the lectionary readings for the particular Sunday we meet.
Our time also includes prayer and other spiritual exercises. Sessions are facilitated by various members of parishes that currently have an LGBTQ+ ministry.
About Embracing God’s Gifts
As members of the Mystical Body of Christ, the Church, we are called to celebrate and share the gifts of diversity of sexuality in our church today.
Our organization, Embracing God’s Gifts, has been formed as an instrument for recognizing these gifts and incorporating their goodness and use into the life of our parish.
Our mission is to create opportunities for the spiritual enrichment, support, and inclusion of all diverse individuals while being informed by church teaching and to promote awareness and community building among them.
We will accomplish this through various endeavors that foster support, communication, and social activities. We invite all to participate in this group with open-mindedness and compassion.
This group is open to anyone interested in fostering support, engaging accompaniment, and encouraging spiritual, social, or service-oriented activities among sexually and/or gender-diverse members of our parish and their family members and allies.
