Q: Is Open Table Communities LGBTQ+ Affirming
A: Yes we are. We want to be very clear that we affirm those who identify as gay, lesbian, bi-sexual, trans or queer. We seek to be a community that is open for anyone who is looking to explore a healthy spirituality anchored in the Jesus story, and we do not view various sexual orientations as something to be changed or fixed, but understood, celebrated and encouraged within the context of healthy loving relationships.
Because our organization has people at all different places of an evolving faith, there are are those within Open Table Communities that do not hold the view stated above, yet are open to learning, listening and growing with those who hold a different view and perspective. This is an essential value of Generous Space where we seek to understand and love others and learn from others, rather than cancel them, judge them or exclude them.
