Interfaith as a Faith—A Way to Move Past Preaching about Love and Compassion to Actually Practicing Them “A commitment to Interfaith is no small commitment. Nor is it an easy commitment. But I do believe it can be a rewarding and healing one. Interfaith widens our world. And, if we let it, Interfaith frees us from the imprisoning shackles of one of the most debilitating of all human emotions—fear of the ‘other.’” —from Chapter 6 The interfaith movement is taking root. More and more of us are exploring it. At the same time interfaith finds itself at a crossroads. Where do we go now? Rev. Steven Greenebaum not only suggests the faith of Interfaith as a positive way forward but also offers a practical, down-to-earth approach to a more spiritually fulfilling life. In this accessible how-to guide, Greenebaum addresses: What it means to practice Interfaith as a faith and why you might want to embrace it.Why you can choose Interfaith as a faith and still keep your own spiritual tradition.How to establish the necessary foundations to start an Interfaith spiritual community.How to choose the right minister for your Interfaith community.What you can expect as your community forms and grows.And much, much more. Along with offering resources such as Interfaith liturgy and guides to Interfaith church governance, he includes the voices of members of the Living Interfaith Church, the community he founded, to share their whys and hows of participating in an Interfaith church.

There has been ongoing controversy over the place of non-heterosexuals in church and society, with ordination and same-sex unions being particular hot-button topics. Now Kenneth D. Thurow, a pastor in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, makes a compelling case for welcoming non-heterosexuals to A Place at the Table, basing his case on the Bible, the social sciences, and the theology and mission of the church. This book offers guidance on interpreting the Bible, examines what the Bible says about sexual behaviors, explores the concept of "abomination," invites reflection on life "outside of Eden," declares welcome to be a vital part of the church's mission, and recommends specific actions. "... an accessible, fresh, compelling reframing of the issues around non-heterosexuality. Moving beyond current rhetoric, this book returns to essential questions: how do we read the Bible, see ourselves as church, and understand the mission of God as including radical hospitality. It will encourage dialog around one of the hot topic issues facing the church." -Dr. Ann Fritschel, Associate Professor of Hebrew Bible, Wartburg Theological Seminary "... makes an excellent case for enlightened understanding of scripture. Discussion of biblical texts is vast and fair. Chapters provide excellent lead-ins to discussion." -Dr. Frank Benz, Professor Emeritus of Old Testament, Wartburg Theological Seminary

Justice Calls

Justice Calls

For to follow Jesus as our wisdom teacher is to live into communities of belonging, not places of welcome. And there's a big difference. Churches announcing that “all are welcome” are a dime a dozen. I was serving one of them in 1983.

This collection of sermons adds compelling clarity to the growing chorus of Christian voices that are passionate about LGBTQ justice and equality--not in spite of their faith but precisely because of it. With a combination of pastoral sensitivity, scholarly insight, and courageous vision, these sermons are a must-read not only for LGBTQ people longing to know they don't have to deny their religious convictions in order to embrace their sexuality and/or gender identity, but also for people of faith who wonder if they have to disregard the Bible in order to fully accept their LGBTQ neighbors, friends, and family members. This volume is an ideal resource for small groups, Sunday school classes, preachers, church leaders, and all people everywhere who are interested in recognizing how the rich resources in the Bible can be cultivated in order to celebrate--rather than condemn--LGBTQ friends and neighbors.
