Join us for a book launch with E. Carrington Heath! Their latest book, Called Out: 100 Devotions for LGBTQ Christians releases September 27th and we will be celebrating that release on Thursday, Sept. 29th at 7pm.
The experience of growing up "different," coming out in a disapproving environment, having one's identity and relationships questioned or downright rejected shapes the faith of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, and queer Christians in ways those outside the community cannot fully understand. LGBTQ Christians need spiritual resources that speak to the unique joys and challenges of their journey.
E. Carrington Heath offers one hundred devotions on such topics as authenticity, coming out, relationships, chosen family, religious trauma, and more to nurture the faith of our LGBTQ siblings and help friends, family, and allies grow in understanding and faith.
Fully affirming of all, sensitive to the diversity of the entire LGBTQ community, and backed by theological depth, these devotions will lift the reader up and empower them for the work of transforming the world.
E. Carrington Heath (they/them) serves as the Senior Pastor of the Congregational Church in Exeter, New Hampshire. They have been active in the LGBTQ community for over twenty-five years and are one of the few nonbinary ministers to serve as the senior pastor of a congregation. Their previous two books, Courageous Faith: How to Rise and Resist in a Time of Fear and Glorify: Reclaiming the Heart of Progressive Christianity, were published under the name Emily C. Heath.
