Umoja: The Bible, Sexuality, and Gender for African-American Faith Communities TEL Course

May 28 to June 25, 2014

Umoja: The Bible, Sexuality, and Gender for African-American Faith Communities TEL Online Course Series

Tuesdays , May 28– June 25, TEL Online

“UMOJA” is a Swahili word that means unity. African-American communities, however, are deeply divided over homosexuality. Many families and congregations are unsure about supporting loved ones who come out as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender (LGBT), especially if and when church authority teach to the contrary. Many are broken-hearted and confused in the midst of hurtful words and damaged relationships. This 5-week series is designed to help repair, restore and rediscover the kinship of families and churches. Each class session will cover the Umoja: Unity in the Community curriculum to help participants learn how to use this study in their local church context.
