Google+ Hangout: Here’s what you need to know

Love Into Light Hangout

You’re invited to a Google + Hangout with author Peter Hubbard on Tuesday, July 2 at 7pm Central. We’ll be discussing the Defense of Marriage Act ruling, the end of Exodus International and Peter’s new book, Love Into Light: The Gospel, The Homosexual and The Church.

Could God use one of the most controversial moral issues in our nation to awaken His church rather than damage it? Pastor Peter Hubbard believes He can. In his new book Love Into Light: The Gospel, The Homosexual and The Church Hubbard asks “How can Christians live in a culture that promotes the gay lifestyle, yet worship in a culture that never talks about it– other than possibly to condemn it?”

Love Into Light seeks to inject the cultural conversation with the same love and truth that Jesus offers. For those that see homosexuality as somehow worse than other sins, Hubbard offers clarity through his real-life counseling examples and scripture, explaining that self-righteous judgment of homosexuality is a sin just like homosexual behavior itself. “If our attitude toward a gay or lesbian person is disgust, we have forgotten the gospel,” says Hubbard. And for those who feel the Bible is an outdated resource on the topic, Hubbard argues its relevance.

Planning on joining us live? Here are some suggested actions:

    Do we have to be present at the hangout to win the prizes? I have a meeting, and am not sure how late it will go. Thanks!

      You can still win if you’re not able to be there. You’ll be able to watch a re-cap on YouTube later (you’ll just have to miss out on the live chat and the opportunity to ask Peter your questions).

    Are you going to record the hangout? I’d love to be a part of it but tonight is impossible.

      Yes, as soon as the Hangout is complete it will be available for watching on YouTube. The post we create that says “Watch the Hangout Live” will have the recorded video.
