Lenten Book Study

February 28, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

What is Queer Virtue?
A movement to reform and revitalize Christian faith.

“Authentic Christianity is and must be queer.”
This is the fundamental premise of Queer VirtueChristianity persistently calls the followers of Jesus to rupture, or queer, false binaries that pit people against each other.  Jesus does this when he presses the question, “Who is my neighbor?”, calling his followers to hit a reset button in their assumptions about who “we” are, who “they” are, and how we are supposed to treat one another.
Queer people navigate this kind of rupturing every day.
Queer people must:
* discern an identity
* tell the truth about it even in the face of material risk
* find others who share this identity
* build community.
LGBTQ community persistently looks to the margins to see who isn’t yet included and decide what we’re going to do about it.  This “path” bears remarkable similarity to the path that Christians are called to walk.”
Thus queer experience is a lens that can help Christians better understand and navigate an authentic Christian path. Exploring ethical dimensions of queer experience such as Pride, coming out, scandal, and hospitality, Queer Virtue lifts up the queer ethical path as a model for progressive Christian practice, illuminating and potentially vivifying the Christian faith.
