Thinking biblically, thinking missionally
We asked Nigel Wright to write a paper for us on this topic. Neil Brighton at Poynton has also made available some study material he produced for his own church; and because real issues affect real people, we have also included the first of some relevant stories.
- Nigel Wright: The blessing of civil partnerships
- Neil Brighton: Gay Marriage – why the debate?
- Ruth’s story
Let us know what you think! There is always space for you to comment – so let’s have a helpful conversation about this highly topical issue – and one which has enormous missional implications.
Mark Elder gave a very well-received option at our 2014 national conference entitled Christianity and Homosexuality (audio), (PowerPoint) – he emphasises that these are personal views reached after engaging with this issue over a number of years.
Peter and Kim Brookes were also at the conference. They have formed Eklektos, a support network for Christian parents of gay or lesbian children. Find out more at the Eklektos website.
At our first-ever Theology Summer School, Phil Robinson took a session on Christianity and homosexuality: navigating the minefield with grace and truth – which you can hear using this link
