Title

The Listening That We Are: LGBTQ Folk, Scripture and Spiritual Formation

Description

Over the past several decades, heated arguments over orientation and gender identity have rocked the Church. The Bible has become a weapon used against LGBTQ people. Mona's lecture examines an important question: how can marginalized people who have been negatively affected by so-called "clobber passages" submit themselves to the transformative power of Scripture? And in answer to this question, Mona will explore a practice she refers to as Queer Lectio Divina. Keynote lecture from LGBT Week at LTS, November 13, 2008. Digital audio recording (mp3). Duration: 38 minutes, 31 seconds.
