If you live in Chicago please join us for our upcoming Living in the Tension gathering on Monday, May 19th. We will meet at 7pm in Room 124 at 5255 N Ashland Avenue. This week we will have a special presentation by Jake Bradley, the Youth Outreach Manager for The Night Ministry. The Night Ministry is a Chicago-based organization that works to provide housing, health care and human connection to members of our community struggling with poverty or homelessness. Jake will share about their experiences working with Chicago’s LGBTQ homeless youth population and how the average person can help.
If you’re available beforehand, we will meeting at Jerry’s Sandwiches on 5419 N Clark St. at 5:15pm to grab a bite to eat and hang out.We hope to see you there!
These gatherings are an opportunity for anyone who is interested in the intersection of faith, culture, and sexuality to come together and safely discuss these divisive topics. In these meetings you will find members of the LGBTQ community, Christian community, and other communities, from gay Christians, those pursuing celibacy, atheists, and ex-gays t0 liberal and conservative straight Christians and straight non-Christians. We all willfully enter into a place of constructive tension, intentionally forming a community that struggles through difficult topics in a peaceful and productive manner.
