Episode 37 | Let's Talk About: Christianity & LGBTQ+ w/ Elizabeth Woning

The Woman Beings sit down with pastor, writer, theologian Elizabeth Woning of Bethel and the Changed Movement. Elizabeth shares her controversial experience of walking away from lesbianism, after many years of being a fierce advocate for feminism and LGBTQ+ within the church. Today, she continues the fight... in a different way. While she still holds dear to her desire for LGBTQ+ to be wholly included and welcomed in the church, she also supports traditional theological thought surrounding the topic. Elizabeth is a woman whose voice has been rejected by most schools of thought. The majority of traditional, conservative Christians find her too gay-affirming, not trustworthy. Most in the LGBTQ+ community find her rhetoric dangerous and condemning. Elizabeth firmly stands in the gray - a gray where a lesbian couple can drop their child off at Sunday school, yet still hear traditional biblical messages on sexuality in the pew. With all that controversy in mind, Woman Being is a podcast that holds space for the gray, for unanswered questions, and for women who venture into those spaces.   For an alternative view on sexuality in the church, check out our episode with Jared Edskerud: https://youtu.be/JbbNtMluaOQ   Follow Elizabeth: https://www.instagram.com/elizabethwoning/   Changed Movement Resource Page: https://changedmovement.com/resources-page/   ---           Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/womanbeingpodcast/ Website: https://www.womanbeingcommunity.com/ --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app
