The beauty of Spring. The liberation of Passover. The vitality of Easter. The friendship of Ed Wilde.

Come this Sunday to celebrate the abundance of our life together, and to revel in the community we build together, one day at a time, day after day, for generations.

With immense gratitude,

LGBTQ Theologies: What LGBTQ Spiritual Leaders Say About Their Faith

Scott J. Neely

April 11, 2019

Saturday, May 11

8:30 am – 3:00 pm

Spartanburg Methodist College Chapel

On Saturday, May 11, come to a day-long event centered on LGBTQ theologians and spiritual leaders. These thinkers will share their own theological understanding of themselves and our world—beyond the arguments straight clergy have about LGBTQ people’s lives, even when expressing support. Our speakers include several who have spoken at UUCS recently:

  • Dr. Caroline Caldwell
  • Shelton Ridge Love
  • Ashley Penn
  • Davelyn Hill
  • Dr. Cody Sanders

This event is free. Register at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/lgbtq-theologies-what-lgbtq-spiritual-leaders-say-about-their-faith-tickets-59320806128. Questions? Contact Anne Garner (intern@uucs.org).

This event is organized by a team of Spartanburg clergy seeking to build support within the faith community for LGBTQ people and issues. The planning team is comprised of ministers from Central United Methodist Church, STAR (Sacred Rituals and Traditions), Spartanburg Methodist College, and Anne Garner and Scott Neely from UUCS, with support from the LGBT Fund at the Spartanburg County Foundation.

This will be a powerful event. Please spread the word, and join us.
