Our friends from St. Hugh of Lincoln Episcopal Church, Elgin, IL reached out to us to share a resource they created concerning LGBTQ+ persons and scripture. They share in this resource examples of varieties of gender expression in the Bible, refutations of anti-LGBTQ+ "clobber" scriptures, and LGBTQ+ affirming scriptures. The Bible is a text that is composed of writings in different languages, from many different authors from many different cultures and contexts, and comes to us with a history of interpretation and for many loaded with feelings. This resource in neither exhaustive, nor definitive but it is a good way in which to start engaging with a Biblical text that affirms and celebrates LGBTQ+ people.
You can find the resource here: https://www.sthugh.net/lgbtq-affirming-scripture
You can also contact Pastor Jack if you would like to talk about this topic.
