The Marin Foundation team is very excited to announce that on March 1, 2011 we officially signed a contract with Zondervan Publishers to produce a six session DVD, with a Participant Guide, on building bridges that released December 13, 2011! Check out our promo video…
This new resource will be for any church, university, non-profit, organization, clinic, community center, small group of friends or individuals interested in what it means to not only elevate the conversation between the LGBT community and the conservative world, but also culturally engage each community through our Living in the Tension (LITT) gatherings—as there will be an entire session devoted to building and sustaining your own LITT group. We are so, so excited about this new resource and pray it has a huge impact in continuing to spread this bridge building movement! The six sessions will include:
1) Love is an Orientation, 2) Building Bridges between Conservatives and the LGBT Community, 3) Theology of Bridge Builders, 4) Answering the Tough Questions, 5) Teens and Sexuality, and 6) Living in the Tension Gatherings
We are blessed to enter into this partnership with Zondervan Publishers, who have been the driving force behind making this resource a reality. They are the publishing leader in producing high quality, mass-market DVD curriculums (Rob Bell’s NOOMA series, NT Wright, Tim Keller and Gabe Lyons among others), and we are humbled they believe so strongly in us and our bridge building work.
We filmed in a dozen locations around Boystown and the city of Chicago, interviewed six LGBT people coming from different perspectives, and we’re really excited about how it is all coming together. Below are just a few pictures from the filming, and we are going to post all of the pictures from the various locations soon. Below you can find Session 6′s free downloadable PDF companion guide:
