> > What does the Bible say about LGBTQI issues?

What does the Bible say about LGBTQI issues? Reading and interpreting scripture with integrity and inclusivity.

From Genesis and Leviticus to Paul’s letter to the Romans, the Bible is used to condemn and abuse individuals and communities of differing sexualities and gender norms. This workshop seeks to introduce participants to the issues faced by LGBTQI+ individuals in the context of faith, sensitively exploring the Biblical texts commonly referred to as “clobber passages”, and seeking new ways to understand the text and the context in which they were written. This workshop takes the Bible seriously as an important text in the lives of believers, and offers tools on how to read and understand the Bible with both integrity and inclusivity.
