Oxford Area PFLAG community meeting October 12th, 7 pm
A Queer Life of Faith: One Christian's Discoveries
Featured Speaker: Slats Toole
This event is co-sponsored by Oxford Area PFLAG.
So often Christianity and LGBTQIA2S+ identities are pitted against each other. How can we look at scripture for how to celebrate queer identity? What happens if we look at scripture with an eye not towards how it might condemn queerness, but how it might uphold and celebrate it? Let's learn some of the ways that queer Christians have encountered their faith that moves beyond the ways others have tried to shut them out. The talk will be followed by a Q&A with our speaker and faith leaders from open and affirming communities.
