Upcoming Book Study: Changing Our Mind

We would like to invite anyone who would be interested in going in depth on the subject of rethinking traditional and religious teachings about the full inclusion of LGBTQ+ people.

Author David P. Gushee is the Distinguished University Professor of Christian Ethics at Mercer University and Chair of Christian Social Ethics at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, and Senior Research Fellow, International Baptist Theological Study Centre.

Fellow author and theologian Brian McLaren calls Changing Our Mind, “Deep, thoughtful, and brilliant” noting that Gushee is “refreshingly clear and understandable by ‘common people’ who know neither philosophical nor theological mumbo jumbo.”

The Book group will work with the included study guide as we discuss the questions raised in the chapters.  Participants can order the book through Amazon or any bookseller.

We will meet on Wednesday evenings at 6:00 PM in the church parish hall for roughly 90 minutes.
