Tiffany Series Panel on Sexuality and Religion
March 26 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Leaders from the Christian, Jewish, Muslim and Buddhist faith communities will talk about the commitment of different religions to supporting LGBTQ people. The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) is co-hosting this event.
Addressing the need for such a discussion, pastor Andrew Foster Conners said, “With many LGBTQ people actively fearing whether there will be attempts to roll back basic constitutional rights, it’s important for the faith community to come together and reinforce our commitment to stand with them and those they love.”
Assistant pastor Tim Hughes, who is gay, added, “Many of us who identify as both LGBTQ and people of faith are tired of being scapegoated in the name of divisive politics. There are depths of wisdom in our traditions that speak to the virtues of diversity and inclusion. In fact, the very existence of LGBTQ people of faith defies the narrative of ‘us’ versus ‘them’.”
Pastor Foster Connors noted, “Brown Memorial has a long history of standing in solidarity with the LGBT community in the struggle for justice, and it’s a joy to have this discussion here at the church.”
Tickets: $15 ($5 for students); available online here and at the door. Parking and shuttle service will be available.
