The May 9th forum (9am, Guild Room) will present Voices of Witness Africa. In this short film, LGBT Africans tell about discovering their sexuality and about the terrors of coming out to families who are apt to disown them or worse. They talk about their dreams, and their relationship with God. Their straight allies tell of the cost they have paid for daring to minister to these Christians. And they all speak of their hope for a future in which the church listens to and values all of its children. There will be discussion following the film about implications for us as people of faith.
