for Sacred Eros, Jan. 24

Elizabeth [surname redacted] from Cambridge Welcoming Ministries begins this month's discussion on queer identity and spirituality. As the term "queer" is reclaimed, and assumptions about sexuality and gender challenged, spiritual communities are also rethinking their theology, worship and prophetic witness around these issues.
This is a great blurb, but I still don't have any more ideas about what to talk about than when Desmond first "wondered if [I] might be willing to start a discussion on being queer and Christian, or queer spirituality/religion" a week ago (though I still owe Lorraine answers to her questions).

[Edit: "Sacred Eros is a monthly discussion group at Arlington Street Church, providing a safe and supportive space to explore questions about sexuality from a spiritual and ethical perspective."]
