Gay and Christian: The Conversation Continues

8 by 11 flyer logo follow up event

The Gay and Christian Symposium was a beautiful and moving event. The Saint Benedict Forum is hosting three follow up events to highlight major themes and keep the conversation going. 

CALLED TO LOVE: A HEART FULLY ALIVE
A Workshop with Sr. Miriam James Heidland
Tuesday, March 1 · 7:00 − 9:00 p.m.

Why are we so attracted to beauty and why do we long for infinite satisfaction and a life of meaningful communion? In this workshop we will discover what is revealed in our  humanity—male and female—what is at the root of our deepest desires and how, through the healing of our call to love, our lives become fruitful and free.  Participation is limited to twenty students.

Contact Dr. Jared Ortiz (jjortiz@hope.edu) if you are interested in participating.

 

DESIRE OF THE EVERLASTING HILLS
Movie Screening with film writer David Michael Phelps
Wednesday, March 9 · 8:00 p.m. · Winants

Three intimate and candid portraits of Catholics who try to navigate the waters of self-understanding, faith, and homosexuality. Talk-back after the film with the writer and producer, David Michael Phelps, a Hope College alum.

Free and open to the public.

 

PASTORAL APPROACHES TO SAME-SEX ATTRACTION
A Workshop with Pastor Adam Barr
Tuesday, March 15 · 7:00 − 9:00 p.m.

Are you considering a future in vocational ministry, or do you simply want to help serve faithfully as a layperson in the local congregation? Every church leader should be equipped to minister with integrity at the intersection of sexuality, Scripture and pastoral practice. In this workshop, led by Adam Barr, author of Compassion Without Compromise: How the Gospel Frees Us to Love Our Gay Friends Without Losing the Truth, you’ll have an  opportunity to participate in a hands-on workshop, exploring these issues from a perspective that embraces a traditional understanding of human sexuality while  encouraging radical hospitality for all people.  Participation is limited to twenty students.

Contact Dr. Jared Ortiz (jjortiz@hope.edu) if you are interested in participating.
