Living in the Tension Gathering – Tues, Jan. 24th

What do you think of when you hear someone say “building bridges” as it relates to engaging others? What does it mean for your relationships? Is the language appropriate for the work we all are engaged in when it comes to “building bridges” between the Christian and LGBT communities?

This upcoming Tuesday, January 24th, we will be gathering at 7pm for a Living in the Tension gathering to discuss these questions. We will be at our usual spot in Room 120 on 5255 N. Ashland Avenue.

We hope to see you there.

Much love.

    great site! I love your ‘comment policy’. I might get deleted ’cause I just got off working all night and I tend to be “wordy”. God bless you for the work you are involved in here.
