|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 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.
