Living in the Tension – Tues, April 17

For our Living in the Tension community gathering on April 17th, we will be hosting a group from CCDA (Community Christian Development Association) and the gathering will still be open to the public. We will be sharing some information about The Marin Foundation, a friend of ours will be sharing some of his story about faith and sexuality, we will break up into groups to have discussions about thoughts on heteronormativity and whether or not it influences our lives, and we will end with a Q&A session.

We will be meeting at our regular place in Room 120 & 122 at 7:30pm on 5255 N. Ashland Avenue.

Much love.
