The late G. K. Chesterton famously wrote over eighty years ago, "These are the days when the Christian is expected to praise every creed except his own." How true his words are for us today! As culture has embraced homosexuality and same-sex relationships, many Christians feel pressured to re-evaluate their beliefs and embrace a more inclusive posture in order to be tolerant and loving. What exactly does the Bible say about homosexuality and same-sex relationships? Can we trust in God's word to guide and shape how we think about this issue? How can believers who hold to a traditional view of sexuality maintain their convictions with compassion, yet without compromise?
Join us on March 1 with Pastor Jonathan Holmes to understand this important issue from a biblical perspective and to equip you for wise and compassionate conversations.
The workshop will be held at Parkside Church main campus in The Venue from 6:30-9pm. There is no charge but a reservation is requested. Childcare is not provided for this event.

What are creative ways to draw from literature, arts, sciences, and pop culture to bear fruit in the personal ministry of the Word? In what diverse ways can sound theology find expression in counseling? How might a biblical counselor use the world in which they live to bring scriptural truth to life in the minds of others?
We'll look at these questions at our next Iron Sharpens Iron meeting on Thursday, January 26 from 6:30-8:30pm in Room A222 at Parkside Church Bainbridge.
This next year we will not be offering How People Change or Helping Others Change workshops at Parkside Church. However, training will be offered by Pastor Jonathan Holmes at The Chapel in Akron on January 14 and at Parkside Church Westside on March 18.
