[From Peter D'Angio, rector, St. Luke's Scranton] On Friday, November 21st at 7:00 p.m. Saint Luke's will host the Integrity Chapter of the Diocese of Bethlehem for a viewing of the independent documentary "For the Bible Tells Me So."
As described on the film's website, "Through the experiences of five very normal, very Christian, very American families -- including those of former House Majority Leader Richard Gephardt and Episcopal Bishop Gene Robinson -- we discover how insightful people of faith handle the realization of having a gay child. Informed by such respected voices as Bishop Desmond Tutu, Harvard's Peter Gomes, Orthodox Rabbi Steve Greenberg and Reverend Jimmy Creech, FOR THE BIBLE TELLS ME SO offers healing, clarity and understanding to anyone caught in the crosshairs of scripture and sexual identity."
Following the film, we will have a discussion led by Brian Patchcoski. A member of Saint Luke's, Patchcoski currently is a graduate student at Penn State focusing on LGBT issues in Higher Education. He also serves as the diversity consultant for Saint Luke's as it moves toward becoming an inclusive and welcoming community.
All are welcome to attend. For more information, please contact the Rector, Peter D'Angio, at 570-335-2140 or PeterStLukes@verizon.net. For information and directions to Saint Luke's, please visit www.StLukesScranton.org.
