Sexuality and the Bible
Thursdays Nights | April 20th-May 11th
Holy Spirit Lutheran Church has a strong stand on openness to all people, including members of the LGBTQ community. But many Christian groups use Biblical texts to exclude people from membership or services on the basis of their sexual orientation or identity. What does the Bible say and how is it interpreted? Come and explore the texts used in this conversation and discuss what the Bible does and does not say. The 4 theological sessions will be led by Rev. Dan Selmann. Fill out the registration form here.
The Biology of Gender Identity and Sexual Orientation
Thursdays Nights, 7:00 pm | May 18th and 25th
These two lectures will present what the biological sciences reveal (and don't reveal) about gender and sexual orientation and how we experience and internalize both into our self-identity. We'll discuss the implications of the science for our Christian faith, and both lectures will include time for questions. Our presenter will be Dr. Paul H. Lange, Professor and chair Emeritus of Urology at UW Medicine and founding Director Emeritus of the Institute for Prostate Cancer Research at Fred Hutch. Fill out the registration form here.
