Kirkwood UCC officially became an Open and Affirming congregation of the United Church of Christ in April 2007. With this we affirmed our belief that all people are loved by God, regardless of sexual orientation. As a faith community, we are living out this proclamation each and every day. But many Christians in the world around us find their faith taking them in a different direction on this issue, and cite scripture as their source of authority. We will review the texts in scripture that are most often cited by those opposing homosexuality, and discuss the interpretation and understanding that often accompanies their positions. Pastor Betsy will lead this discussion. Bring your Bible and your questions!
