Defeating Agendas: Video Series

The videos below are from a four-part series of seminars given in 2012 to pastoral care givers and laypersons in traditional evangelical churches who wanted to learn about building and sustaining faithful relationships with the LGBTQ community.

The quality of the video is not great but that’s because we are working on a shoe-string budget.  Hopefully you can enjoy it and learn something from it, nevertheless.

Defeating Agendas: Session 1:
Presenting the Problem – Exploring the relationship between the church and the gay community

Defeating Agendas: Session 2:
Building A Framework – Introducing paradigms for Christ-like engagement with the gay community

In our second session we explored two paradigms for Christ-like presence with the LGBTQ community and shared practical chronological steps towards engaging in this manner.

 

Defeating Agendas: Session 3:
Moving Forward – Presenting info, tools, and strategies for creating and sustaining faithful relationships with the LGBTQ community

In our third session we explored how to practically implement the steps we established in session two, in order to foster faithful engagement with one another in the midst of disagreement and controversy.

Defeating Agendas: Session 4:
Q&A – Answering Your Questions

Our fourth and final session was dedicated towards answering questions that attendees submitted in our previous three sessions.

As a sidenote – From about the 2 minute mark in our video up until about 13:35, a video was shown to the audience which you will not be able to see unless you watch it here: Dr. Drew Discussion on Reparative Therapy

I discovered then that my wiper fluid was frozen and I couldn’t easily clear my windshield without the assistance of semi-trucks splashing significant moisture on the front of my car. My field of vision shrank to a small square immediately above my dashboard.

So I hunkered down and drove on.
