Frank Schaefer, March 29-30, on Trials, LGBTQI People, Church, & Spiritual Identity
Frank Schaefer was defrocked in December of 2013 for performing his son’s same sex wedding. Love for his son trumped the rules of the church. What does it mean to maintain spiritual integrity in the face of pressures to act in a different way? How can the UMC have spiritual integrity with the rules it currently has? Frank Schaefer will speak about integrity, spiritual identity, and the importance of prophetic witness inside the church and throughout the world.
