Monday Nov. 7 Living in the Tension

For the upcoming Living in the Tension community gathering on November 7th, our friend Shawn Harrison will be sharing with the group about a part of his journey with faith and sexuality followed by a Q&A portion. Shawn is a youth pastor who has same-sex attractions but has chosen to pursue marriage with his wife of ten years. We will be meeting at our usual spot in Room 120 on 5255 N. Ashland Ave. at 7pm.

We hope to see you there.

Much love.

    I’m new to Evanston. Working at Bluestone tonight, but I’d like to meet up with you guys in the near future. Feel like connecting with me and helping me get my bearings? My schedule is pretty open until I can land a FT gig.

    I really want to hear this. Definitely can’t go, as I’m miles and miles away.
    will it be online anywhere?
