Dear Friend,

This is a special edition of eGraceNotes, reminding you that the next in our Stir the Pot series is coming up this Sunday at 4:30 pm at Grace. 

The first in this series, on Religion and Politics, was quite successful, with 40 people attending the panel discussion and then staying for animated discussion which continued over a delicious meal.

Read on for details of this Sunday's event.

For the Bible Tells Me So To Be Shown at Grace

For the Bible Tells Me So, a film discussing what the Bible really says about homosexuality, will be shown at Grace Church on Sunday, November 23, at 4:30 pm.  The film will be followed by a panel discussion and a light supper of soup and home made bread. 

For the Bible Tells Me So Poster

The film is co-sponsored by the Human Rights Campaign, LGBTS Interfaith Clergy Network, and Integrity of Greater Cincinnati

For the Bible Tells Me So traces the lives of several gay and lesbian persons, giving their home backgrounds, the issues they faced in accepting and being accepted as a gay/lesbian person by themselves, their family, their church, and others.

The comments of many leading theologians and ministers on both sides of the debate are informative and enlightening in assisting and promoting understanding of the various ways people come to their beliefs about this subject.

All are encouraged to see the effective and provocative film. Child care will be provided.  There is no charge for the event although donations in support of the series will be accepted.

We call this series of films and discussions Stir the Pot, because it seeks to bring together people on all sides of various serious issues that face us.   Future events concern the rise of Islam, the environment, slavery, and aging.

eGraceNotes is published a couple of times a month, more or less. Our primary purpose is to help keep members and friends of Grace Church up-to-date on what's happening at Grace.

While we try our best to represent the Grace Church congregation, opinions expressed here are not necessarily those of anyone other than the editor (and perhaps not even his!).

The content of eGraceNotes depends on what news is provided us. Thus, the fact that something appears or doesn't appear in eGraceNotes is more likely a matter of whether or not someone provided information to publish rather than editorial bias. Send news that you think would be interesting to

Photos in eGraceNotes are often edited to remove extraneous material.
