In Episode 005 of To Be Encouraged Bishop Julius C. Trimble and Rev. Dr. Brad Miller talk with Rev. Rob Fuquay from the St Luke’s UMC-Indianapolis about the resource that he wrote “Faithful and Inclusive-The Bible Sexuality and The United Methodist Church.”
The conversation is a deep dive into the issues surrounding human sexuality and in particular just what does the bible says about such matters.
The discussion around interpreting the bible in regards to homosexuality is a the center of the division in the United Methodist Church and is certainly the key factor regarding an expected schism in the church.
Episode 005 is a frank and helpful conversation on the pertinent biblical texts and a good overview of a resource that can be used in the local church by pastors and small groups to navigate this issue.
