Life & Faith
May 2 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
This is an opportunity for CUCCers and friends to gather to chew over questions that are confusing us as we each discern how to live our faith. Anyone may bring a question from your life for our conversation. If you have a friend who might enjoy this free-wheeling and respectful conversation, bring them along!
But, if no one has a question for discussion, Jane Smith prepares one just in case. The May back-up question comes from Jane’s life: So what is gender, really? I’d like to talk about this with people of faith whom I know in my bones affirm / welcome/ appreciate people who identify beyond the boy/girl tradition. As society roils around questions of transgender youth in sports or what kinds of medical treatment should be legal, I have some fundamental questions. For instance, is the whole idea of “boy” and “girl” just a social construct that we’d do better without? Let’s be clear… this conversation is NOT about loving our trans or nonconforming friends differently. Our friends are loved and created wonderfully by God, it is society that is messed up.
What is Life & Faith?
Ever wonder how others navigate the day-to-day of following Jesus? Where does your life intersect with your faith?
Life & Faith is a monthly opportunity to have those conversations over a glass of your favorite refreshment. We bring our questions and our stories, getting ideas from each other. Jane Smith, the convener, brings a back up question if needed to get us started.
In the winter months we hope to gather at Transfer Co. Food Hall. When the weather is chilly or wet, we’ll meet inside in the sunken section of the main floor. If the weather is NC balmy, we’ll sit on the patio. Those who want dinner or a beverage should arrive at 6:30 to buy your own. Conversation runs 7-8PM. You’ll find us at the table with our Life & Faith comma. Friends are welcome!
We have two guidelines – What is said at Life & Faith stays there AND we tip generously.
If you would like to receive the email reminder with the back up question and confirmation of our location (which could switch to Zoom if COVID numbers go up or the weather is miserable), contact Jane Smith at email@example.com.
