Many today consider the Bible’s views on sexuality to be outdated. Suggesting that God has particular designs for sex and attraction can seem narrow-minded and unloving. But is that true?
Is God homophobic? How should the church relate with those who experience same-sex attraction? How does the Gospel teach us to approach these questions with both grace and truth?
Author and pastor Sam Allberry joined us for a special evening seminar to discuss these and other important questions.
Main Session: Sam Allberry: The Gospel and Same-Sex Attraction
Q&A Panel: Sam Allberry, John Henderson, & a member of Del Ray Baptist Church
Sam Allberry has been a pastor at St Mary’s Church, Maidenhead, UK since 2008. Prior to that he worked as the pastor for students at St Ebbe’s Church, Oxford, UK. His passion is helping people understand the significance and wonder of biblical truth. He is the author of Is God Anti-Gay?
Heather Barwick is a wife and mother who was raised in a home with two ladies she called “mom.” Heather will share her story and insights about how to relate to those whom you deeply love yet disagree with on intimate issues.
