Before we can adequately address the tension of LGBTQ+ identities in ministry we must travel back to the beginning of our faith story. What does it mean to be created in the image of God? How are we to be partners and stewards in God’s creation despite the Fall? What is the universal call to holiness? How do we participate in the building up of the Kingdom of God? And where does Jesus Christ fit into all of this? This session will explore essential questions like these as we seek to understand ourselves in the order of creation. The format will be interactive, inviting personal reflection and active conversation as a means to discovering meaningful and relevant insights for our own lives.
