On Wednesday, June 22, at 7:00 pm central, Call To Action is hosting a webinar on why LBGTQ people choose to stay in the Catholic Church. Owen Borda, PhD, is a professional pastoral musician by training, theologian by temperament, healthcare/teacher advocate by vocation, is committed to service of those at the margins. His studies at Maryknoll School of Theology, Hartford Seminary and Seton Hall shaped to his doctoral research in interdisciplinary studies at the Union Institute and University. He will talk on Home is where the heart is: Being LGBT and being ‘home’ in the Church.
Owen explains, “I am so often asked, “How can you stay in THE Church?” For me it all comes down to the adage that “Home is where the heart is.” Being “home” and in relationship with “family” is always a complicated dance of acceptance, boundaries, frankly God’s grace. In this webcast, I will share some of my experiences in the struggle as a gay man in and out of the church as a pastoral musician, AIDS provider, and family member. Our dialogue will include a open forum for discussion and mutual support.”
