Nashville, TN (PRWEB) April 03, 2015
On April 12, 2015, Christ Presbyterian Church (CPC), a PCA church in Nashville, TN, will host The Same-Sex Attraction Public Forum, a community-wide event that will share the story of one man’s same-sex attraction and one church’s response. Senior Pastor Scott Sauls will lead a public discussion with special guest, Stephen Moss, followed by a question-and-answer session with the audience. Moss is a second-year seminary student at Covenant Theological Seminary (St. Louis, MO) who lives with same-sex attraction and thoughtfully explores what this attraction means for a contemporary Christian in the United States.
The Same-Sex Attraction Forum is one of the first events of its kind to be held at Christ Presbyterian Church. Public Forums are intentional conversations about things that matter to all people, whether they believe in Jesus or not. For the people of CPC, Public Forums are inclusive of those who do not share the church’s beliefs, as well as those who do. A standing invitation to all Public Forums at Christ Presbyterian Church is extended to Christians, people of other faiths, religious skeptics, atheists, and anyone else who values respectful dialogue about ideas that matter to contemporary culture.
“We look forward to hosting our Nashville neighbors for the forum on same-sex attraction,” says Senior Pastor Scott Sauls. “Stephen Moss speaks from a unique perspective in the LGBTQ conversation. Agree with his conclusions or not, we hope his story will help all kinds of people from all kinds of perspectives engage the issues in life-giving ways. We also hope that a picture of Jesus will be offered that is compelling to believers and skeptics alike.”
Those interested in attending the forum and engaging in the discussion may visit christpres.org/forums for a list of essays and articles, audio clips, videos, books, and more that may be helpful in processing same-sex attraction in light of the Gospels.
The Same-Sex Attraction Public Forum will take place in the Christ Presbyterian Church Sanctuary at 4:30 p.m. on Sunday, April 12, 2015. Childcare will be provided. This event is open to all of Nashville. As a prelude to the Forum, both morning services at Christ Presbyterian on April 12 (9:15 and 10:45 a.m.) will center on the beauty and complexity of human sexuality from a biblical perspective.
