Trinity Presbyterian Church of Berwyn cordially invites you to the Screening and Discussion of "Out Of Order" on Sunday May 20th.

Sponsored by the Mental Health and Addictions Ministry, the groundbreaking feature documentary reveals the complex and painful struggles faced by lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) faith leaders as they confront entrenched bigotry and work to build loving support within their churches.

There will be a Panel Discussion with the Religious Community, moderated by Caroline Fenkel MSS, LCSW from Center for Families in Malvern. The panel will discuss the LGBTQ community and acceptance in the religious community.

AGENDA:
11:30-12:15 - Luncheon
12:15-12:30 - Introduction
12:30-1:30 - Screening of "Out of Order"
1:30-2:15 - Discussion

Please RSVP to TrinityMHAM@gmail.com if you plan on attending this event and include your numbers if you are bringing a group. This is a free event and an opportunity for understanding and dialog in an open forum. A Free Will Offering will be accepted.

The film does more than document the struggles of LGBT people seeking to serve the Presbyterian Church (USA), but also outlines the unique contributions LGBT people of faith can bring to the church.

It tackles the issue of homophobia by subverting cliches of lesbian and trans people, instead offering a new vision. Our cast of characters challenges the legacy of spiritual violence and proposes a new face of Christianity; one that both welcomes queer clergy and celebrates its leadership. Out of Order is the first film of its kind to positively portray queer people of faith actively changing the meaning of church through alternative Christian communities, worship practices, and theological interpretation.

If you think this is a film about being gay or being a Christian, think again. Out of Order is about empowerment. It invites everyone, gay, straight, faithless or religious to stand up and start making a difference. As Secretary of State Hilary Clinton declared at the International Human Rights day in Geneva, “LGBTQ people are not less than human. That is why gay rights are human rights and human rights are gay rights.”
