“Born This Way: Why A Growing Number of Faith Communities are
Welcoming LGBTQ Persons”
Dr. Stephen Sprinkle
We welcome to our pulpit Dr. Stephen
Sprinkle of Brite Divinity School at TCU.
Dr. Sprinkle is an ordained Baptist
minster who was named 2010-2011 “Hero
of Hope” by the largest LGBTQ Christian
Church in the world, Cathedral of Hope in
Dallas, for his advocacy on behalf of the
LGBTQ community. Dr. Sprinkle earned
his “street credentials” in direct action
efforts to win justice in the infamous
Rainbow Lounge Raid protests in Fort
Worth in 2009.

Dr. Sprinkle will speak about why
more and more faith communities
are welcoming lesbian, gay, bisexual,
transgender, and queer people, and will
also offer a way forward for the LGBTQ
community and churches to bring about a
better world for us all.

“The Eighth Principle”
The Reverend Annie Foerster
Last month in Rhode Island delegates to
General Assembly talked about spreading
the message of love through music and
the power of storytelling. But it wasn’t
that many years back that we discussed
whether or not to make changes to the
seven principles that we’ve used since
their adoption in 1985. Rev. Foerster will
give her us take on whether or not they
should be changed or added to.

August 17
“Lost and Found and ...”
The Reverend Jennifer Innis
What happens in those moments when
we are good and lost? When there is no
path? And is finding the path always the
solution? Bring your wandering selves and
see what we might find.

August 24
“Ingathering Water Communion”
The Reverend Jennifer Innis
All are invited to celebrate the start of
the new church year with this service of
return and reconnection. All ages are
welcome to bring a small amount of water
that represents our summer experiences
to be shared during worship.

August 31
“The Fruits of Faith”
The Reverend Jennifer Innis
As we finish the summer theme of
Continuous Revelation as the program
year begins for children and youth
religious education, the sage reminds
us that we are worshiping what we are
becoming. With what ends shall we begin?
