Our Lakeland Sneak Peek on May 18th at the Polk Theatre just jumped to the next level!
I’m thrilled to announce that Justin Lee will be hosting our Q&A following the screening.
Besides the fact that Justin’s book is the first one I read when I started asking questions, here’s a bit more about why Justin is a superhero in my eyes:
Justin Lee has been an influential leader in the LGBT Christian conversation for more than two decades. In the 1990s, Justin ran online support groups for LGBT Christians before founding the Gay Christian Network in 2001, where he served as executive director for 16 years. He is currently the executive director of Nuance Ministries, focused on working across areas of theological disagreement to promote grace and mutual understanding.
Justin is the author of Torn: Rescuing the Gospel from the Gays-vs.-Christians Debate. His next book, Talking Across the Divide: How to Communicate with People You Disagree With—And Maybe Even Change the World, is due out in August from Penguin Random House. Justin blogs at GeekyJustin.com.
Not sure if you caught that part about his new book, but I feel like the “talking across the divide” is THE challenge for our country right now – so I can’t wait to read that. With that as his passion, I’m looking forward to this Q&A to dig a little deeper than the typical “what was your budget and what camera did you shoot it on?” questions. Let’s talk empathy, humility, and questioning.
