The Table is Bigger than you Think: A Queer Guide to Reconstructing Faith After Destruction
In this breakout session we’ll explore where to begin in the reconstruction of our faith. I believe our experience of the Bible, relationship with God and sense of the spirit in our lives will be even more vibrant, alive and embodied after the deconstruction of old beliefs and healing from wounds caused by the church. It takes work for us queer people to grieve the harm that has as done and yet to not stop there and see what God still has for us. We’ll explore where and how to experience God in our lives and the beauty that comes when we open ourselves to seeing and experiencing the divine in more than just the church pews. We’ll also explore how to begin to think about the Bible and trust there is still deep meaning in it even after we’ve left a way of seeing it in a traditional fundamentalist way of encountering the scriptures. There is hope to be LGBTQ and still have a whole and deep spiritual life.
