“No Purpling:” the voice of queer theology in youth ministry

Ever heard the phrase, “Girls are pink, boys are blue… no purple-ing!” in youth ministry before? Ever thought about how that phrase might make spaces unsafe for some of God’s children? In this workshop, we’ll talk about why and how God loves queer folks. To love someone well means to be deeply analytical about language, bible teachings, and behavior in church-we’ll explore all of these things through a lens of queer theology.
