ONA and the Bible Webinar
April 23, 2024 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm EST
Join us for an enlightening webinar led by the Open and Affirming Coalition, titled “ONA and the Bible—Embracing the Full Tapestry: A Biblical Lens on LGBTQ+ Belonging & Welcome.” This thought-provoking session aims to explore the vast expanse of the Bible, comprising 31,000 verses, and invites participants to delve beyond the seven short texts that sometimes pose challenges for congregations on their journey toward an Open and Affirming covenant. In this webinar, we will navigate the rich tapestry of biblical teachings on our relationships with God and each other. While a mere seven verses have been focal points in discussions about condemning same-sex relationships, our exploration will encompass the broader context of the scriptures. How do we interpret the entirety of the Bible’s 31,000 verses when addressing questions and concerns within our congregations?
