Come To The Table

Come To The Table

You don’t need to bring anything to God to be Beloved.⁣⁣
⁣You don’t need to bring unconditional trust.⁣⁣
⁣You don’t need to bring radical obedience.⁣⁣
⁣You’re Beloved when you show up with open hands. You’re Beloved when you don’t have it in you to show up at all.⁣
⁣This is the scary, beautiful mystery of the Table.

The Bible and
Homosexuality

The Bible and Homosexuality

6 Aug 2021

Rev. Mona West, Ph.D.

Lesbians and gay men face discrimination because of societal attitudes. Unfortunately, these attitudes are often taught by churches and, sadly, the Bible is frequently used as a weapon to “bash” lesbians and gays. It is important to remember that such hurtful things are not a reflection of Christ, or the way God wants the church to be, or even what the Bible really says.

Only a small number of passages in the entire Bible reference same-sex sexual activity (six out of sixty-six books of the entire Bible). Obviously this topic was not of great concern to the biblical writers. Yet these verses have been used to justify hatred, condemnation and exclusion of God’s lesbian and gay children.

Christian and gay: A religious leader reflects

Fearless: Reverend Troy Perry founded the Metropolitan Community Church in 1968 as an outreach to the underserved gay community. Rev. Perry looks back at his personal evolution from a heterosexually-married, closeted gay man in the conservative south to a spiritual and civil rights leader of the LGBT community in Los Angeles and beyond.

So what is MCC all about and what does MCC Sydney believe?
 
And how does faith and sexuality go together?

Here are some resources that may help in answering some of these questions

What People Say
About Us

Sydney Star Observer (SSO) interviewed Peter Webster one of our members in 2015: 

SSO: "As LGBTI people become more accepted in heterosexual society, why should places like MCC Sydney continue to exist?"
 
“We could go to a gay-friendly church, and there’s a number of them, and we can take communion. (But) We can’t do it together. We can’t kiss. We can’t hold hands. No matter how open and affirming, and that’s the official term, ‘affirming’, churches are, there are limits.”

“In MCC Sydney, my partner and I take communion,” Webster said.

“We go down there together. We hold hands. We give each other the bread and the wine. We kiss. Then we go for prayer with the pastor… then at the end of that we kiss again".
