Sacramento NYWC 3 – Andrew Mariner

The second speaker on stage was Andrew Mariner.  He develops miniistries with the GBLT community, hoping to build bridges between them and the church (and the gospel).  It was certainly a risky move by YS to include him as a speaker, because this is such a polarizing issue today.  I was really thankful for his contribution, though.  Excellent stuff,  here’s what I wrote:

  • Andrew called himself the gayest straight guy in America
  • the GBLT community is radically accepting and open
  • the options seem to be: tell them to change or hide and quit.  Neither of these options seem to be working.
  • Billy Graham: The Spirit convicts, God judges, WE LOVE.
  • constructive tension: Find out their story…Are they justified in their beliefs?
