This week, Dr. David Gushee is inviting all of our readers to join him at upcoming events. The author of the best-selling call for the inclusion of LGBTQ Christians, Changing Our Mind, writes: “The following are events where you might enjoy finding a new network of people, organizations you want to support, and insights and information that will bring light to your life.”

Also of interest are two events in Europe, both in October: I’ll be speaking at the Consortium European Baptist Theological Seminaries online meeting on Christianity and Democracy, and as well at “Christianity and democracy today: International Perspectives” at the Protestant Faculty of Theology of the University of Tubingen.
Thank you for traveling together as we follow Jesus and seek a loving, ethical way to live in our world today.
