Rethinking queer theology homogeneity: Holy Conversations for lesbians in Metropolitan Community Churches
Atwell, Anne Renee
MetadataShow full item record
This project is an invitation for lesbians within Metropolitan Community Churches to speak the truth of their lived experiences, describe their experiences and encounters with God, and through that, create a lesbian theology. This author has observed that even in welcoming faith communities such as Metropolitan Community Churches, lesbian voices are missing from theological conversation. By critically engaging with various feminist, women’s, and queer theologies, this project envisions the modification of a Holy Conversations resource created by Metropolitan Community Churches that will consider how lesbians encounter God in various aspects of their lives. This author hopes that the creation of a lesbian theological resource will encourage other marginalized communities to speak of their God experiences and to create theologies that will connect them with God and with others.
