The topic for today was The
The Bible Study focused on John 13: 31- 14: " I am the way, and the truth, and the life. "
The Bible Study groups appear to have bonded together and we have appreciated the opportunity for sharing. The Bible Study groups are greatly diverse and we have developed a sense of trust and love in each other.
We saw a video and then entered into our Indaba group. The video focused on concerns that people share around the globe and we were able to express our feelings freely. Many, however, noticed that in the video, there was no indication of the speaker’s sexual orientation.
In the Indaba groups, we are being the people of God, who love others in the name of our Lord. We are about building bridges.
In many groups, the issues of sexuality have been discussed, and as a result we experienced much honest listening. Throughout the discussions, it was clear that the respect and dignity of all people must be honored.
In the afternoon, a hearing was conducted on the Lambeth reflections.
