Generous Spaciousness Conference Retreat
Friday, 10 May 2013 at 7:00 PM - Sunday, 12 May 2013 at 11:00 AM (EDT)
A safe place to be authentic, to share, to worship, to learn and to grow! All are welcome to enter this experience of Christian community with generous hearts, a listening and humble posture, to experience God's outrageous love and grace! Space is limited so make sure to register today.
What is Generous Spaciousness? GS is a relational posture that acknowledges the reality of diverse perspectives on the question of faithful discipleship for same-sex oriented people. These differences have polarized the church, hindered our public witness as the Body of Christ, and alienated LGBT people from the church.
This posture prioritizes nurturing a safe and encouraging environment for gender and sexual minorities to explore and grow in faith in Jesus Christ, entrusting each individual to the leading of the Holy Spirit while encouraging them to be a part of a Christ-centered community.
Generous Spaciousness seeks to build bridges, to find unity in our diversity, and to pursue peace.
