But what about the Bible?

Please click here for details of our dialogue on March 7.

Spend the afternoon of February 5 with Rev. Dr. Ron Hopson and other Black pastors, exploring Scripture as it relates to justice for our gay and transgender brothers and sisters.

There is so much talk these days about justice for gay and transgender people, but where can you safely get your questions answered and your concerns addressed?

Rev. Dr. Ron Hopson is Associate Professor of Psychology and Divinity at Howard University. In addition to a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from Michigan State University, he attended Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary and was ordained to Christian ministry in 1988. Dr. Hopson’s current work is in the area of Sexuality and the Black Church. He has presented his professional work and conducted workshops in the U.S. as well as in Europe and Africa.

Rev. Dr. Jeffrey Haggray and Many Voices invite you to an afternoon of respectful dialogue.  Rev. Dr. Ron Hopson from Howard University School of Divinity will guide us to take a fresh look at Scripture and find new answers.

  • What does the Bible really say about sexual orientation?
  • How does our faith call us to respond to our gay and transgender brothers and sisters?
  • Can we be both Christian and affirming?

Please don’t miss this opportunity to dialogue confidentially with your peers in ministry. There’s so much to learn, and Many Voices offers a safe space.
