Faith Voices on Justice invites you to “Conversations On Building Bridges” on Thursday, April 25 at 7:00 pm. Presenters Kendra Weddle-Irons, PhD and Jann Aldredge-Clanton, PhD. Drs. Weddle-Irons and Aldredge-Clanton are authors of the recent book, Building Bridges: Letha Dawson Scanzoni and Friends. Letha Dawson Scanzoni changed the landscape of American evangelicalism through her groundbreaking work on the gospel-based intersection of gender and LGBTQ justice. She coauthored two of the first books that support women’s equality and LGBTQ rights with the Bible: All We’re Meant to Be and Is the Homosexual My Neighbor?
In all her work Scanzoni applies the liberating message of Jesus to women and to people who have been marginalized by church and society because of sexual orientation. Building Bridges combines an exploration of the life and work of Letha Dawson Scanzoni with stories of people she continues to empower through her writing and the Evangelical & Ecumenical Women’s Caucus—Christian Feminism Today, an organization she cofounded.
