As part of LGBT History month 2016, the LGBT Catholics Westminster Pastoral Council warmly invites you to a discussion with Savi Hensman on themes in her latest book, Sexuality, Struggle and SaintlinessEkklesia | 'Sexuality Struggle and Saintliness: Same Sex Love and the Church' by Savitri Hensman

Affirming lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people continues to be challenging for some in the churches. Savi seeks to demonstrate that the central resources of the Christian tradition make change possible, desirable and indeed necessary. Delving beneath recent ecclesiastical conflicts, the book looks at how churches can, and do, live with disagreement. It provides a positive way forward in handling divisions over sexuality.

The 2016 LGBT History Month has religion, belief and philosophy as its theme, hence this event. A flyer of the event can be found here.

Come along on Monday, 15 February 2016, 19.00-20.30, to the Parish Hall, 114 Mount Street London W1K 3AH - refreshments provided.
