Based on the book, Queer Virtue by the Rev. Elizabeth Edman, this series is designed to help us think about Jesus’ demand that we challenge – our ‘queer’ – thinking that pits us against one another. The ultimate question is: how can we live our faith and be the church more effectively?
The LGBTQ2S+ community persistently looks to the margins to see who isn’t yet included and decide what we’re going to do about it. This “path” bears a remarkable similarity to the path that Christians are called to walk. Thus, queer experience is a lens that can help Christians better understand and navigate an authentic Christian path.
