Why the Church of the Nazarene Should Be Fully LGBTQ+ Affirming - Thomas Jay Oord

Why the Church of the Nazarene Should Be Fully LGBTQ+ Affirming


This book fundamentally changes the game for the Church of the Nazarene.
A growing number of people are calling for fresh conversations about sexuality and gender. And many want fundamental change. This book gives voice to those people.
There are strong reasons the Church of the Nazarene should become fully LGBTQ+ affirming. The writers of these essays - whether queer or straight - lay out those reasons, share their experiences, and explain why change is needed.
Love rests at the heart of the denomination's view of God. And yet its statement about human sexuality does not support the ways of love.
At least in America, the Church of the Nazarene is rapidly shrinking. Many people are leaving the denomination because of its views on LGBTQ+ matters. According to research, in fact, the holiness movement is the worst at keeping young people.
This book offers hope. Hearing the voices of queer people, allies, and scholars is a crucial step toward transformation. For love to win in the Church of the Nazarene, change is needed.
ENDORSEMENTS
"We Nazarenes have a peculiar origin story. The pioneers of our movement didn't agree. Even where some of the most important tenets of faith are concerned, our founders couldn't and didn't agree. But they prioritized being (and staying) together, in the hopes that what united them would be stronger than what would divide them. In that same spirit of hopeful inclusiveness, these writers dream of a tent large enough to house our differences. May we learn again the power of dignity, inclusion, diversity, breadth, and love." - Jon Middendorf, Senior Pastor at Oklahoma City First Church of the Nazarene
"These essays are the start of a much needed conversation for the church and LGBTQIA+ community. At times they are not easy to read - you may agree with some things and not with others. But the generations coming behind us (some as authors in this book) need us to hear and engage with their hearts. Read them, let their emotion soak in. And then start talking about it!" - Bruce Barnard, Elder in the Church of the Nazarene
