On this National Coming Out Day, Rev. Dr. Roland Stringfellow will follow-up his PSR Chapel “Coming Out Day” semonr and provide more details on the approach CLGS takes in our Roundtable projects.

Join us as we explore the unique role of congregations to joyfully include LGBTQ individuals in every aspect of the life of their community. There are many challenges in achieving this goal and CLGS’ Roundtable projects are equipped to address these theological and cultural barriers.
