FAITH MATTERS: RELIGION AND THE LGBTQ COMMUNITY IN FRACTIOUS TIMES

The Tiffany Series is proud to present “Faith Matters: Religion and the LGBTQ Community in Fractious Times,” a panel discussion featuring representatives of four religions. Co-hosts are Brown Memorial’s Tiffany Series and The Human Rights Campaign (HRC).

Delegate Mary Washington will serve as moderator, and participants represent Christian, Jewish, Muslim and Buddhist faith communities. Panelists are Buddhist Jann Jackson, who has taught at the Mindrolling Lotus Garden Retreat Center in Virginia;  Rabbi Elissa Sachs-Kohen of the Baltimore Hebrew Congregation;  Pakistani-American Muslim student Anushka Aqil, who is at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health;  Baptist Bishop Allyson Abrams of the Empowerment Liberation Cathedral in Silver Spring;  and Brown Memorial Senior Pastor Andrew Foster Connors.

The discussion will be wide-ranging, but panelists will address the experience of being both LGBTQ and a person of faith. They will also explore the commitment of different religions to supporting the LGBTQ community, especially should hard-won rights and freedoms come under attack.

We hope you will join us for this timely and important conversation.

Parking at the Eutaw-Marshburn Elementary/Middle School lot in the 100 block of Mosher St. as well as shuttle service to the church will be available.
