Our latest podcast series, “LGBTQ and the Church,” engages what has been an important conversation for some time. We believe it is only growing more urgent that believers and church leaders engage in this discussion with love and with wisdom.
There are many questions Christians are wrestling with, including, what does it mean to love someone in the LGBTQ community while not compromising what the Bible says? Can someone be gay and a Christian? Should we use someone’s preferred pronouns? How can pastors address these topics with care from the pulpit?
We will explore questions like these from multiple angles: theological, academic, cultural and social. We will also hear the local pastor’s perspective. Our guests are more than experts—for some of them this conversation is extremely personal. We hope this series will be informative and help you navigate this challenging area of life and ministry with wisdom, grace, and love.
