LGBTQ+ Spiritual Conversations
To register for the Zoom call click here.
Our LGBTQ+ Spiritual Conversations group is a safe and sacred place to explore our spiritual journeys in light of our sexual and gender identities. Participants learn contemplative listening practices and share spiritual journeys with each other for support and encouragement. Each session begins with a spiritual practice and silent contemplation, and although we are a Christ-centered spiritual community, people of all faiths or no faith are welcome to participate. To make sure that this is a safe space for all participants, we ask that only people who identify as LGBTQ+ attend. Thank you.
Free/Drop in. Donations welcome.
