Queer-Affirming Bible Study for Students

Whether you're brand new to the Bible or looking to experience it in a new way, this study is for you! Together, we'll engage with the Bible through different lenses (including queer, feminist, and liberation theologies) and ask, "How does this text speak to my life?" For both queer-identifying students and allies. All creeds and religions are welcome!

The fellowship will draw on the traditions and customs of Africa and the African Diaspora to foster theological conversations, engaging activities, spoken word and musical moments, opportunities of fellowship, and worship services that present a sense of “home” on the Harvard campus. Come and experience powerful music from the African tradition, a dynamic word, fellowship and food. All are welcome! For more information, please email Assistant Minister, the Rev. Calvon T.
