The Church and Gays Discussed at Lifetree Café

When: Sun., June 4, 7 p.m. 2017
Price: Free
The church’s stance regarding same-sex attraction will be explored at Lifetree Café on Sunday, June 4 at 7 p.m.      The program, titled “The Church and Gays: One Pastor’s Dilemma,” features a filmed interview with Danny Cortez, a pastor whose changing views regarding same-sex attraction led to his being removed from his denomination. During the interview, Cortez explains how the church’s traditional response to same-sex attraction never gave him a sense of peace. “I remember thinking about Jesus and the way he gave life, and I started thinking maybe the church is wrong,” Cortez says. “Maybe the traditional interpretation of this issue is wrong. I remember thinking maybe I don’t believe what I grew up believing.” Lifetree participants will have the opportunity to share their views and stories of their encounters with the church regarding the issue. Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Lifetree Café is located at Campbell Creek Connexion on the corner of Union and 13 th St., Arcata. Lifetree Café is a place where people gather for conversation about life and faith in a casual, comfortable setting. Questions about Lifetree may be directed to Bob at 707 672 2919 or
