“Behold, I am making all things new.”
– Jesus, Revelation 21:5
Christ Church is a social congregation – when we’re not dealing with a global pandemic, we like to eat and play as well as pray together. Our ‘togetherness” has increased online, though – Sign up here to receive our weekly E-news.
WHERE SCRIPTURE, THEOLOGY, SEXUALITY AND GENDER MEET:
Workshop Series May 4,11, 18 at 7 pm, on Zoom
The Episcopal churches of Southern MD (and one Lutheran…) is offering a series of workshops open to EVERYONE who yearns to understand what Scripture says and doesn’t say about sexuality; who seek to be affirmed in their personhood no matter what may have been said or done to them in past or present; those with practical questions; and those who aren’t sure where to begin. The workshops will be led by the Rev. Jerry Maynard, theologian, pastor, and curriculum writer for the Episcopal Church. This series is not intended to tell you what or how to think but to answer questions, inform, equip, and support so that we can transcend soundbites and be united in connecting people with the fiercely accepting love of Jesus. In order to make the most use of everyone’s time, please complete this short survey on the questions and concerns most important to you. This survey is not intended to stoke debate or be used as a platform for vitriol.
*For more than 50 years, The Episcopal Church has long upheld the dignity, sacred worth, and belovedness of every human being, including those who identify as LGBTQIA+. This theology is rooted in the spirit and likeness of Jesus Christ who welcomed, embraced, and adored all people. It’s also rooted in our baptismal covenant wherein we promise to strive for justice and peace among all people and to respect the dignity of every human being. Although such matters transcend contemporary politics, we know that not everyone is at the same place on this journey.
