Stained Glass Rainbows explores the most controversial subject facing America today: the collision between the LGBT community and the Christian church. Can gays be Christian? Is homosexuality a sin? Is there a gay gene? Is there such a thing as an ex-gay? Both families and churches are being torn apart over these divisive issues. Stained Glass Rainbows brings together the voices of the left, the right, the middle, and helps bridge the gulf through it’s dialogue. From gay pride parades to anti-gay protests, Stained Glass Rainbows confronts the controversy of faith through the hearts and minds of people on both sides of this uncivil war.
The study guide companion to Stained Glass Rainbows contains 6 sessions to help small groups get a better understanding of the issues surrounding homosexuality and Christianity.
• What does scripture really say?
• Is it sin?
• Should the Church change its views?
• Roots... and is change possible?
• How do you love your gay neighbor as yourself?
The study guide explores 30 minutes of additional video content on the DVD. It includes thought-provoking questions by scholar and theologian Robert A. J. Gagnon, author of The Bible and Homosexual Practice: Texts and Hermeneutics and Homosexuality and the Bible: Two Views. These questions are designed to spur conversation among participants in a group setting. The 48-page, full-color study guide also includes the powerful testimony of Kristin J. Tremba, who left her lesbian lifestyle and is currently the director of Exchange Ministries. The study guide has room for writing responses to each question and is a great companion to the film Stained Glass Rainbows.
