LABC Update – September 20, 2022

Jim Hopkins

September 19, 2022


In this week’s study of “Changing Our Mind” by David Gushee we will be considering chapters 14-17. In these chapters the author continues his consideration of some of the biblical texts that have been used as evidence that the Bible does not support the inclusion of GLBTQ in the church and suggests that the theology of covenant is a good starting place for building a healthy, and inclusive, sexual ethic. Interestingly, he quotes former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld (quite a surprise), we go into adult life with the sexuality we have, not the sexuality we might want or wish to have. Gushee writes, No adult is a sexual innocent. Our task, if we are Christians, is to attempt to order the sexuality we have in as responsible a manner as possible.

I invite you to join us tonight at 6:00 or tomorrow morning at 10:30.
