‘The Church and Gays’ at Lifetree Café

LEWISTON — The church’s stance regarding same-sex attraction will be explored at Lifetree Café from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, June 8, at 1919 Lisbon Rd. Admission is free.    
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.

“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.
