Elevating the Dialogue: Greenville, NC
The Reformation Project is excited to host a public conversation on how churches can be more inclusive and supportive of LGBTQ people even if our interpretation of the Bible differs.
Too often, conversations about LGBTQ Christians in the church can descend into bitter debates that divide rather than build up. Consequently, many Christians are reluctant to engage the conversation, wary of generating more heat than light. We believe that it is possible to have more loving and more Christ-like conversations about gender and sexuality that acknowledge the diversity of viewpoints that exist in the church while also respecting and honoring one another as committed Christians.
This is a free event and all are welcome, whether you've been a Christian your whole life or haven't set foot in a church in years. Join us and bring a friend as we engage this vital conversation, and please pre-register here. It's time to elevate the dialogue on LGBTQ inclusion in the church.
This forum will feature Jason Lineberger, lead pastor of Ignite Church; Jason Ebeling, lead pastor of Discovery Church; and the Rev. Audra Abt, the Vicar of the Church of the Holy Spirit, Greensboro. Amelia Markham, The Reformation Project's program and organizing coordinator, will moderate the conversation.
Elevating the Dialogue: North Carolina is one in a series of public conversations held in churches around the country to encourage meaningful dialogue among affirming and non-affirming Christians.
