Living Faithfully: Human sexuality and the United Methodist Church
Join us for this timely and interesting study, which will be led by Pastor Jane Eesley. This four week study will help you understand the various views about the ministry and teaching of the United Methodist Church around issues of human sexuality. Purchasing a book will be necessary in order to strengthen our knowledge and deepen our conversations on this topic.
Living Faithfully is designed to help you understand the shape of this debate and what it means for the present and the future. Each chapter includes background on the Bible, Christian theology, history, stories from diverse viewpoints, and United Methodist structure and practice to guide reflection and conversation. You’ll also find definitions of key terms and information about upcoming events. The four chapters are:
1. Is the Practice of Homosexuality Incompatible with Christian Teaching?
2. Is Same-gender Marriage Compatible with Christian Teaching?
3. Is Ordaining Practicing Homosexuals Compatible with Christian Teaching?
4. Where Are We Now?
