Why does “all are welcome” only seem to apply to straight people in many churches? We all need a community that will welcome and support us throughout our life’s journey, but unfortunately the church has not always been a safe place for people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning (LGBTQ+). Join us for dinner and conversation with Rev. Donna Simon from St. Mark’s Hope and Peace, as she discusses how the actions of the church have affected the LGBTQ community, and how we can create a space where people feel welcome no matter who/whom they love. Our dinner that night will be a taco bar, and as always we’ll have a vegetarian option, so if you can, please bring a complementary side dish to share.
