Following the Apostle Paul’s admonition to “think on these things” (Whatever is noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable and praiseworthy), the Board of Christian Education and Spiritual Formation is initiating a new “Think on These Things” discussion group that will meet on the second Sunday of the month.
Topics are chosen by participants of the group and could include religious and/or societal issues such as faith & practice, poverty, secularization and its impact on the church, best economic systems to deal with poverty, immigration….you get the idea.
All are welcome!
“What the Bible Says About Homosexuality”
Sunday, February 8
6:00 p.m., LC #102
Led by Frank Kendall
In January, the Think On These Things discussion group discussed the verses in the Old Testament that address the issue of Homosexuality. At our February meeting, we will discuss the verses in the New Testament that address the same issue.
The Bible has been used by well-meaning, faithful people throughout the ages to justify different, and at times even opposite, positions on controversial subjects. In this session, we will review the scriptures people look to in order to come to a position on homosexuality. We will examine the various ways people interpret the passages and why, and discuss how we read those scriptures. A list of scriptures will be sent to all participants prior to the meeting. If you would like to be on the list of participants, please let Frank Kendall know.
