"Debates are raging over queer lives in both churches and political sphere. These debates usually produce two, very polarized sides representing seemingly irreconcilable perspectives. But what if we were able to start the conversation over? Imagine if the entire conversation about queer lives and Christian faith had its start in your living room or your own local congregation." This is the premise of Cody J. Sanders new book, "Queer Lessons for Churches on the Straight and Narrow". Cody encourages us to take a fresh look, not only at the content of issues, but the process by which we address them.
Debonee talks with Cody about the book, breaking down the various ways the Church could be learning from the LGBTQ community. We'll talk about ideas around Relationship. Community, Faithfulness, Love, Violence and even Forgiveness.
