GAYS AND GOD spirituality group begins this summer, hosted by First and Central Presbyterian. Larry Peterson and Doug Gerdts are the facilitators. It is our intention that the group will include anyone from any church or faith system that wishes to explore what it means to be gay and have a relationship with God. We will meet for a planning meeting at First and Central Presbyterian (across from the Hotel DuPont in Wilmington), 7 p.m. on 13 June. At this meeting we will decide our future meeting times, locations, and dates, decide how often we wish to meet, and select our initial series of topics. In our initial couple of meetings, we intend to explore the various scriptures used both to denounce or support homosexuality. Then, we may view one or more documentaries on Christians and Homosexuality. Then, we think we would like to discuss topics within various books that explore what is unique about being gay and spiritual as well as share our own journeys of faith and frustrations. We do have a grant to provide books for participants who are unable to purchase books if we do decide to discuss any particular book as a whole. We do welcome Jewish and Christian folk as well as anyone else who wishes to share our journey. First and Central Presbyterian 1101 N.

In life, the one thing we all pray for most is freedom. Freedom from money, laws, and the freedom to be happy with no restraint or fear. We have the ability to live in little moments of freedom as we strive for the greater moments of freedom for others; and it is in those daily expressions of freedom one discovers the meaning of life. You are freer than you think.
