Dates: July 30-September 23
The Reformation Project-Advancing LGBTQ Inclusion in the Church is offering an 8-week program for Christian parents seeking to reconcile their love for their LGBTQ child with their love for the Bible and faith in Jesus Christ.
This program includes a close look at biblical teaching on topics like marriage, gender, and sexual ethics and offers an opportunity for parents to discuss these topics within a group of other parents who are on a similar journey.
Each week, parents will be provided with resources to aid their exploration of that week’s topic along with thoughts for personal reflection and questions for online discussion. Over the course of these eight weeks, there will also be four virtual gatherings on Zoom, providing an opportunity for face-to-face dialogue and mutual support.
