LABC Update – August 20, 2022

August 19, 2022


I hope you are thinking about joining our read/study of “Changing Our Mind” by David Gushee. The author is a highly regarded ethicist and pastor. In the book he describes how and why he changed his mind in regard to the place of GLBTQ inclusion in the church, moving from a position of staunch rejection to a position of warm acceptance. Following the study guide included in the book we will for five sessions, on both Tuesday evenings and Wednesday mornings beginning on August 30th and 31st, learn the ways in which inclusion is a much more biblically defensible position than rejection. Please let me know if you will be participating and if you would like a copy of the book.

Jim H.


A quote from the authorBetter is one day in the company of those bullied by Christians but loved by Jesus than thousands in the company of those wielding scripture to harm the weak and defenseless.
