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.
