Once an advocate for excluding LGBTQ persons from the church, Rev. Mark Achtemeier shares what led to his change of heart.

Exploring the problems with exclusion and the insights into the Bible’s message that led him to recognize the fullness of God’s love and support for LGBTQ people, he shows how a careful reading of scripture reveals God’s good news about love, marriage and sexuality for gay and straight people alike.

Four sessions, 7 p.m. Oct. 22 and 29 and Nov. 5 and 19 at Sewickley United Methodist Church. Books and sign-up available at Sewickley UMC, $12.

All are welcome.
