Colby Martin author of
Rethinking our Misuse of the Bible on Homosexuality

November 14, 2020
9 a.m.—2:30 p.m. live VIA ZOOM remote meeting
This workshop is for you if you have been clobbered!
Clobbered, by those who claim God says your LGBTQIA+ family, friends and fellow congregation members are not welcome in God’s kin-dom.
Clobbered, by those who claim God says who you are and who you love makes you less loved, less accepted, less welcomed in the kin-dom of God.
As author of "UnClobber: Rethinking our Misuse of the Bible on Homosexuality" and, "The Shift: Surviving and Thriving after Moving from Conservative to Progressive Christianity," Colby has emerged as one of the leading voices of the Progressive Christian movement.
Together with his Co-Pastor and wife, Kate, they founded and lead Sojourn Grace Collective, a progressive non-denominational Christian church in San Diego, CA, while enjoying life with their four sons.
It is Colby's deeply held belief that when people are reminded they are loved children of God, wholly and exactly as they are, they begin to live from a place of freedom.
This workshop will delve into the “clobber passages” traditionally used against the LGBTQIA+ community including Colby’s own journey on the interpretation of these passages—a journey that led Colby from Conservative to Progressive Christianity.
This workshop is free of charge. Please register with your name and email you will use to log into Zoom, at vicar@augustanalutheran.com. A link to the Zoom workshop will be forwarded to everyone the week of the event.
Our time together will also include breakout sessions providing space for reflection and discussion.
Please join us via live interactive ZOOM on Saturday, November 14, 2020, from 9 am – 2:30 pm!
