HRC Hosts Virtual Faith Service: Remaining Home in Faith

Filed under: Community, Religion & Faith

The ongoing COVID-19 outbreak has created an intensified state of crisis for many. As our day-to-day lives change and there is a sense of uncertainty around what the future holds, the LGBTQ community is particularly impacted by this issue. Despite the challenging times that may lie ahead, for many LGBTQ people their faith continues to serve as a source of both clarity and hope.

Join HRC and religious leaders from across the country Saturday, March 21 at 6:30 p.m. EST for our Remaining Home in Faith virtual service. We will explore adversity in the face of crises such as COVID-19 and how the LGBTQ community can find positivity and perseverance in the coming months. The service is part of our Religion and Faith Program and a continuation of HRC President Alphonso David’s national faith tour exploring and strengthening the relationship between LGBTQ and faith communities across the U.S.

The liturgy will be co-led by:

Senior Minister Carmarion Anderson, HRC; The Fellowship of Affirming Ministries
Ret. Bishop, Gene Robinson, Episcopal Church, DC
Rabbi Denise Eger, Reform Judaism, LA
Rev. Michelle Higgins, Movement for Black Lives, MO
Pastor Josh Scott, GracePointe Church, Nashville, TN
Imam Abdullah Antepli, Duke University, NC
J.J. Warren, Candidate for Ordination, United Methodist Church

Participants can access the service through the link below. A second livestream of the event will be available on HRC’s Facebook and Twitter channels Sunday, March 22 at 10:00 a.m. EST.
