At The Table Conversation with Bryn Long – Some of the most talked about topics today are transgender people, gender affirming care, transgender athletes, drag queens and the politicization of this group of folks. If you have been curious about what’s said about LGBTQ+ people (and what do all these letters represent?), we would invite you to attend an At The Table conversation on Sunday, October 8.
As part of worship that day, Pastor Claire will sit with guest storyteller Bryn Long, President of the Board of Directors of Out Boulder County, and a former attendee of HOL. Bryn will share his story and his knowledge as a member of the LGBTQ community. This is an opportunity to learn about gender identity, sexual orientation, pronouns, and how to be an ally to the LGBTQ+ folks in our church and community.
Following the service, there will be a light lunch in Wesley Hall where everyone will be invited to join in the conversation and discussion.
To assist in the planning for the lunch, we are requesting people to register their intent to participate in the discussions. You may register by emailing or calling the church office, or you may sign up on the registration sheets provided in the gallery.
If you would like to learn more in a safe setting with the ability to ask questions, then this is your opportunity!
