Christ Church Neighborhood House, 20 N. American St., will next week host two free screenings of a film that examines the intersection of the faith and LGBT communities.
The church will show “Love Free or Die” at 7 p.m. June 4-5. The film examines the life and work of the Rev. Gene Robinson, the first openly gay, non-celibate bishop in the Episcopal Church.
The movie was created by Groundswell of Courage, and guests will have the opportunity to discuss LGBT inclusion in faith communities following the screening with Groundswell producers.
