Faithful and Inclusive: The Bible, Sexuality and the UMC allows you to gain an understanding of how United Methodists can be both obedient to God’s Word and fully welcoming to LGBTQ+ persons in the church.

Join Rev. Tom Berlin and Rev. Barbara Miner for this six-week life group as they talk about creating a safe space to navigate through this thorny issue, relying on the biblical-interpretation approach of Methodism’s founder, John Wesley.

These subjects will be covered:

  • How United Methodists Interpret Scripture
  • Old Testament Passages
  • The Influence of Culture on How We Read the Bible
  • New Testament Passages
  • The Jesus Ethic: What Did Christ Say?
  • Where Does the United Methodist Church Go From Here?

There is no book to purchase, just bring your Bible.
