Dear Reader, here you find more detailed information about some of the workshops we offer.
God, Gays and the Good News
Most members of the LGBTQ+ community in the United States grew up in one of the three big monotheistic religions: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Leaders of all three religions turn back to the story of Sodom and Gomorrah to condemn homosexuality. Let us look at this story more closely and find out what the sin of Sodom really was that made God so furious He had to destroy the whole city. This workshop focuses especially on LGBT issues in the Christian Bible.

How can we start on a journey to heal the wounds these experiences have left? How can we not only believe in healing but also in our right to be unharmed in the future?
