America’s largest LGBT rights organisation has announced the release of a unique online collection of meditations on religious belief.
The Human Rights Campaign complete Out In Scripture collection is available on their website, www.hrc.org/Scripture.
For the past three years, week-by-week, the HRC Religion & Faith programme has provided conversations on Bible passages from more than 100 scholars and pastors representing 11 denominations.
“Over the years my spiritual life and preaching has been transformed by Out In Scripture,” said Harry Knox, Director of HRC’s Religion and Faith Programme.
“This is one of our signature projects.
“As editor Sidney Fowler said, ‘The Bible is not about beating you up, but lifting us all up. It includes the seeds of liberation and justice.’
“Be prepared to be transformed as well.”
The collection includes 175 conversations that span Bible readings organised according to the Revised Common Lectionary, which is used by many Christian denominations to guide worship and preaching.
“This unique collection showcases the extraordinary momentum we’re seeing by people of faith committed to LGBT equality,” said Human Rights Campaign President Joe Solmonese.
“Through this resource we are helping to assure that no one will again have to choose between who they are and what they believe.”
