London LGBT Christian Event

The UK Lesbian & Gay Christian Movement is delighted to offer their members & friends an opportunity to hear Rev. Glenna Shepherd reading from her new book on Monday February 2nd at St Anne's Church in London from 5:30 to 7:30P. “Out on a Limb: Sermons of Risk & Revolution" is a collection of lectures that focus on liberating spirituality. Rev. Glenna Shepherd from Atlanta, Georgia is a minister in the United Church of Christ in the U.S. Beginning with ancient scriptural texts Shepherd explores the intersections of current political & social issues & the radical messages of the prophets of Judeo-Christian scriptures. She brings a new perspective to current issues that often divide & alienate modern people from religion. Tracey Byrne LGCM Chief Executive stated, “It would be great to see you there; Glenna is an inspirational speaker & she & her partner Clare Summerskill have been good friends to LGCM over the years. This promises to be a great opportunity to meet, listen & reflect together.” LGCM has been working since 1976 for the full inclusion of gay, lesbian & bisexual people in the life of  churches. They believe that the way in which the churches & their leaders think, speak & act towards LGBT people needs to change, so that churches & faith communities reflect more clearly the inclusive, welcoming love of the Gospels & that the Christian faith is never used as an excuse for homophobia. Rev. Glenna Shepherd reading event is free.
