Affirming Faith Forum

Affirming Faith Forum The Affirming Faith Forum is a part of the HealthWorks Initiative of the LGBT Center of Raleigh. We meet in the strength and love of community, attesting to how shame and guilt are disarmed.

Our goal is to act on the call to community healing and reconciliation. Participants will join community leaders, to reflect on considerations and options for getting and staying connected with family, friends, neighbors, and colleagues while discussing the issues. We believe that the call to be a loving and just community is significant to life in our community. This scriptural imperative is especially significant now when anti LGBTQ hate based religious rhetoric threatens our lives and well being.

HRC Commends Episcopal Church for Historic Vote Allowing Religious Weddings for Same-Sex Couples

Congratulations to the Episcopal Church in the US for this historic vote. They join the United Church of Christ, the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), and Metropolitan Community Churches in celebrating Same-Gender Marriages. We are proud of your courage. And we adore your new leadership, Bishop Michael Curry from North Carolina.

Who will the next affirming denomination be?

Yesterday, HRC Foundation hailed the Episcopal Church for its vote today allowing clergy to preside over religious ceremonies for same-sex couples as of November 1.

Out! Raleigh 2014: Affirming Faith Forum

We celebrate our lives in so many ways. Sometimes on our own, but most often in the company of others. A significant element to building community includes our creating space to feel comfortable and to enjoy the company of others. Frequently the most strategic step is identifying those who want to participate, whether they are allies, family or friends. Friday’s forum will focus on ways to really be yourself and to expand opportunities to grow communities and feel the excitement of achievement.

Join us for: “Out! Raleigh 2014” We celebrate our lives in so many ways.
