The Scrolls Revealed: Homosexuality and the Bible – An In Depth Study with Rev. Harry B. Stock

June 1 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

We’re kicking off Gay Pride month with an amazing seminar!

For far too long, some teachings about the Bible have diminished individuals of the LBGTQ community. And, because of such teachings, some LBGTQ people have come to believe that they are not loved by God. This amazing workshop will look at the myths and truths of these ancient scrolls. The workshop is geared toward members, friends, and allies of the LBGTQ community. We will look at the scrolls through the influences of ancient Middle Eastern, Hebrew, Greek and Roman traditions, as well as some early Christian traditions. We will hear true translations of the following scripture passages:

  • Deuteronomy 23:17-18
  • Genesis 18, 19 Sodom story
  • Leviticus “The Holiness Codes”
  • 1st Corinthians 6:9-10
  • Romans 1:21, 26-27

Registration is only $30 and includes lunch and materials.
