God and gays considered at Lifetree Café

Published: Thursday, February 20, 2014 at 12:08 PM.

God and homosexuality will be explored at Lifetree Café at 6:30 p.m. Feb. 26 at Lifetree Café at Hope Lutheran Church in their 180° Bistro on the second floor at 3834 US Hwy 98 W, Santa Rosa Beach.

The program, “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.”

Yuan, now HIV-Positive and a professor at Moody Bible Institute, shares his story of finding a Christian faith and wrestling with his sexuality as a gay man.

Chu, after crisscrossing America speaking with a wide range of Christian groups, says, “I’d be lying if I said faith was easy for me now. 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 the opportunity to discuss issues relating to homosexuality and faith in a safe, caring environment.

Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Snacks and beverages are available.

Lifetree Café is a place where people gather for conversation about life and faith in a casual coffeehouse-type setting. Call 267-0322 or email kaylawithhope@gmail.com for more information.
