Finishing The Journey

This resource is intended to guide you through the issue of homosexuality and the church. Published by Northaven in 2000 in anticipation of that year’s United Methodist General Convention, Finishing the Journey has since been read by thousands yearning for a more inclusive church. Over the years, the booklet has continued to resonate with audiences because, unfortunately, the denomination has yet to find reconciliation on this issue. We invite you to encounter these questions and answers, written mostly by ministers and seminary scholars, as you take steps on your own journey.

For The Bible Tells Me So Discussion Guide

Developed by Northaven United Methodist Church, this guide is intended to give you the tools you need to generate a constructive dialogue on the sensitive topic of Christianity and homosexuality. By relying on the suggestions, along with your own experience and intuition, you can help your audience not only respond to the movie, but also to take its message into their own lives. This resource was written with the filmmakers permission, by a panel of United Methodist clergy, educators, and communicators.

Feature 3

This I Know was developed as a companion study to the award-winning documentary For the Bible Tells Me So, which poignantly illustrates the human cost of fear through the stories of Christian families coping with a homosexual son or daughter. Since its release in 2007, the film has inspired a new spirit of reconciliation and understanding among thousands of viewers in theaters and in churches.
