Watch Classes@Willow Video – Andrew Marin.
Andrew Marin, WCCC Guest Teacher – This class will address hot topics and questions regarding homosexuality, and will help participants discover what it means to learn, listen and understand their way through the culture war of GLBT-Christian relations.
This is why I love my church! Willow Creek & Andy Marin: what kind of amazing things can happen from this connection?! I love that my church is willing to jump into the messy, controversial, never-easy, topic of homosexuality in a way that isn’t fear based or centerd on condemnation or even reacting to the current political and media events. It’s an honest and informed discussion that I think will help our congregation(s) to mature in how we handle this key topic in our society.
Check out the video or download the audio and listen in your spare time. The entire 4 week series will be made available online.
Gosh… for the past hour or so I’ve been consumed with trying to post a little 4 sentence comment on my good friend Andy Marin‘s blog Love Is An Orientation. Apparently blogger wants you to create an acutal blog – so I thought I would use OpenID to verify my identity – which sent me in several loops before I found some good info on how to link my open id directly to darrencalhoun.com. I like LOVE my Wordpress blog… it makes commenting (and everything else) so simple! Problem solved… now back to Andy… 🙂
I’m excited that Andy is blogging (I’ve wanted him to start doing that for a while now) and I’m even more excited to see the cover of his book which will be released soon! He is an awesome guy that has quietly become a pretty significant person in my life. I feel blessed to know him and am excited about the doors that God is opening for him and the message that he’s bringing. It’s almost 3AM and I need to get some rest, but I had to mention at least a few words about this wonderful guy. And to top it all off… he knows the power of GREAT HUGS!!!
