Faithful and Inclusive

The Bible, Sexuality, and The United Methodist Church

Pastor Charlie Wilfong and Rebecca Blackwelder will host Faithful and Inclusive, The Bible, Sexuality, and The United Methodist Church in the Worship Annex, starting August 7 at 12:15 p.m. 

Faithful and Inclusive, developed by Rev. Rob Fuquay, the senior pastor at St. Luke’s United Methodist Church in Indianapolis, allows you to gain an understanding of how United Methodists can be both obedient to God’s Word and fully welcoming to LGBTQ persons in the church.

Rev. Rob Fuquay, creates a safe space to navigate this thorny issue, relying on the biblical-interpretation approach of Methodism’s founder, John Wesley. Each video session also features the faith journeys of members of the LGBTQ community and their families. 

The sessions will cover these subjects:

  • How United Methodists Interpret Scripture
  • Old Testament Passages
  • The Influence of Culture on How We Read the Bible
  • New Testament Passages
  • The Jesus Ethic: What Did Christ Say?
  • Where Does the United Methodist Church Go From Here?
