Our small, powerhouse congregation will be hosting a seminar open to all interested in seeking justice in our community. The topic of this seminar is based on the book “What the Bible Really Says About Homosexuality” written by Daniel A. Helminiak, Ph.D. Reverend Timothy Tiffany, of San Diego will be hosting this seminar as we explore the handful of verses in the bible that address homosexuality and are typically used as words of prejudice and exclusion in many circles within Christianity. It is our hope that the work of this seminar will empower the LGBT community and their allies to join forces in new and meaningful ways and enlighten the world with equality.
