I’m excited about this event coming to the Mark Twain House on June 24th, 7:00PM.
This promises to be a dynamic discussion between Jeff Chu, author of the book “Does Jesus Really Love Me?” (which includes a chapter about my story); Justin Lee, founder and president of The Gay Christian Network as well as the author of the book “Torn”; and former born-again believer and now atheist Chris Stedman, author of the book “Faitheist”.
I really loved Jeff’s book and have enjoyed his writing over the past few years. I also really appreciate his personal story, intelligence and openness.
While I never met Justin, I am a bog fan of his blog, book and work at GCN. I’m excited to hear him in person and to meet him.
Both Jeff and Justin — like me — have arrived a place where we can say and affirm that we are followers of Jesus who are also gay. Chris, on the other hand, has landed in a different place, having left the faith after becoming born again in his youth. While I have not read his book, I look forward to hearing his story as well.
I highly recommend attending this event — it really should be great! Let me know if you plan on going! You should register for the event here.
