It was a privilege to be hosted for a book signing event at the LoDo (lower downtown) Tattered Cover Bookstore. I love this historic downtown Denver bookstore! Wonderful ambience, great outreach throughout the Denver area.
The question that stood out for me at this event: “How do you handle conservative Christian audiences versus LGBT?”
My response: both with respect and understanding.
Most all of us wear different hats for different occasions. I especially do when addressing audiences about my book. I come prepared to answer any question, giving each participant the benefit of the doubt, even if disagreement is evident. My book encourages dialogue across differences. I give suggestions as to how we can talk about homosexuality when there are differences in opinion. I, as an author and presenter, attempt to model that – practicing what I preach!
How do we have conversations when we disagree – without judging or calling into question someone’s faith or salvation?
