Pride is on our minds! It's tomorrow in Durham and in Raleigh!
Do you have a Pride story from years past? Perhaps its about how your faith community found new purpose when it embraced a Pride or Out! Raleigh event. Perhaps you, yourself, first took notice of a group of people who embraced everyone - including YOU - at a Pride event. We want to hear those stories!
Also, please join us for the Triangle Pride Interfaith Service to be held at Pullen Memorial Baptist Church the previous Sunday, September 22, 2019 from 3pm - 4:30pm. Connections is a co-sponsor for that service along with many of the Triangle's faith communities and supportive organizations.
Connections is a program of the LGBT Center of Raleigh that provides an opportunity for LGBTQ people of all faith backgrounds (or no faith backgrounds) and our Allies to come together and have conversation about various common concerns and ideas. The idea is to promote communication across a diverse group of people and provide safe, nonjudgmental space for people to express themselves with each other. Reconciling who we are - our sexuality and our spirituality - can be very difficult; Connections can provide a place where we are able to talk openly about such issues as well as other topics that some might consider taboo. Connections is all about building relationships - NOT religion.
Sometimes, we will have a main speaker on a central topic, but most months, we'll just have conversations around the room with small groups and individuals.
This month, please bring some refreshments to share with others. Come and explore new Connections in our faith community.
