This "God & Homosexuality" seminar steps into a conversation currently happening all over the world. What does it mean for followers of Jesus to be loving, faithful to the Scriptures, and honest in their approach to sexuality? Greg Coles, IVP author and worship leader at State College Alliance Church, and Matt Brose, our LIFE Group Coordinator at York Alliance, will share their stories as well as inviting discussion around the key areas in which this cultural issue and the Scriptures intersect.
Standing against the flow of culture has the potential to isolate and wear down the individual believer. However, God has not left us alone—He has given us the gift of community. Jesus has created a new society of people who operate according to different values and motivations, together becoming a display of His glory.
When faced with a world gone mad and a culture that seems to be opposed to God's Word and ways, how will we react? Our immediate tendencies are either to separate or assimilate, but Peter calls us to become ambassadors. The call of the gospel is not to separate from culture or become like the culture, but to live counter-culturally.
