Film Screening: Nov. 5 at 5 p.m., Sanctuary
Class: Sundays, 9:45 a.m., Nov. 6-27, Atrium in the Central Outreach & Advocacy Center
Facilitator: the Rev. Molly McGinnis
Class Description: Pronouns, bathroom laws, celebrities coming out! What’s this all about? And what does it have to do with our faith? In this weekly four-class series, we will explore some basics about gender identity, dip into biblical and theological interpretations, and discuss current issues coming up in our legislative session. The class will be facilitated by Molly McGinnis, as well as some special guests from other faith communities.
We will kick off our class with an exclusive screening of the new film, Out of Order, on Saturday, Nov. 5 at 5p.m.
Out of Order is a groundbreaking feature documentary revealing the complex and painful struggles faced by lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) faith leaders as they confront entrenched bigotry and work to build loving support within their churches. The film follows the journeys of several PC (USA) ministers and people seeking ordination across the country.
Executive director of More Light Presbyterians and star of the film, Alex McNeil, will host a Q&A after the screening. This event is free and open to the public.
