“Following Jesus and the call to Social Justice”
“Take Your Faith Outside” 
Our guest speaker is Lisa Salazar, transgender educator, speaker, person of faith and, quite literally, a person who has taken her faith “outside” the institutional church. Today, Lisa will speak of her experience and what congregations who are longing to be hospitable to transgender people can do to create a safe space.
Today’s texts speak profoundly of healing and Jesus’ care for those on the “underside” of power in society: Hosea 6:1-6, Psalm 50:7-15, Matthew 9:18-26.
Children aged 4 to 11 will focus on inclusion in their program today, with a particular mention of LGBTQ “saints”.
This five-week sermon series runs from January 19 – February 16, 2020.
