This Sunday in Adult Forum we will dive into a four-week series in which we’ll look at themes from the book Rainbow Theology by Patrick Cheng, a professor at Episcopal Divinity School in Boston. “Rainbow Theology” refers to Cheng’s look at theological writings by LGBT people of color across multiple ethnic and cultural groups.
One reviewer describes the book and what it lifts up well when he says that “in a world dominated by a binary, either-or, monochromatic approach to diversity, Rainbow Theology challenges us to recover a place where a multiplicity of experiences and identities are held in creative tension.”
Haeman Hong-Shin, who has studied Cheng’s work in seminary, will help guide us through some of his main ideas as we think about how they speak to our own experiences and the experiences of others both in our community at Old First and in our lives writ large.
