Homosexuality, faith is Lifetree topic

How God feels about homosexuality will be explored at noon and 7 p.m. Tuesday at Lifetree Cafe at Cana, 18 S. Third St.,

The program, titled “God and Gays: An Hour of Civil Conversation,” features the filmed stories of Jeff Chu, author of “Does Jesus Really Love Me? A Gay Christian’s Pilgrimage in Search of God in America,” and Christopher Yuan, author of “Out of a Far Country.”

During the program, Yuan, a professor at Moody Bible Institute, shares his story of finding a Christian faith and wrestling with his sexuality as a gay man.

In addition, Chu discusses his journey crisscrossing America speaking with a wide range of Christian groups. “I’d be lying if I said faith was easy for me now,” he says. “There are days I believe Jesus loves me and every single part of me. And there are days when I doubt that.”

Participants in the Lifetree program will have an opportunity to discuss issues relating to homosexuality and faith in a safe, caring environment.

Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Questions about Lifetree may be directed to the Rev. Barbara Huisman at 302-8036.
