Responding to Fundamentalism (especially about LGBTQ+ issues)
RESCHEDULED to a future Wednesday at 7:00 PM Eastern TBA
Let’s talk about how to respond to people who say homosexuality is a sin and who may condemn those who say they are gay or even gay and Christian. What’s the best way to respond? Should you argue scripture? Turn the other cheek? What’s helpful and not helpful? Come to this practical session for some tools and practice. This session will use the same links as the Unclobber These Passages class (otherwise known as Homosexuality and the Bible).
Register in advance or use your previous registration link:
Help Needed for Study on LGBT+ Needs When Aging
Are you a member of the East Tennessee LGBT+ community? Are you fifty years or older? If so, your help is needed for a University of Tennessee research study.

A Community of Faith
We come together from a rich variety of religious experiences and denominational backgrounds, seeking to:
Celebrate God manifested in every single person
Model Christ and share God’s immutable love
Be God’s hands, feet, and voice sharing the story of Love
We offer our experience and our love -- we share our stories and our journeys -- to encourage and uplift the transgendered, bisexual, gay and lesbian communities of Knoxville and the entire East Tennessee area. We welcome all to join us, regardless of denomination or background.
Communal memory takes shape when we share our stories. In those stories is our longing and yearning for peace, for love, for acceptance, for freedom, equality and justice. In those yearnings is a search for the truth of Spirit.
If you are looking for a spiritual home, come visit us here at Metropolitan Community Church at Knoxville and listen to the voice of the Holy speak to you through the voices of diversity, community, social justice and prayer. We welcome people of many beliefs and backgrounds into the holy space of worship, and pray that you will find justice and peace wherever Spirit leads you.
