Was Jesus perfect, or was he human? How Christians answer this question has vast implications for what we say and do in the name of our faith. Using queerness as an interpretative lens, Liz Edman will explore how the story of the Syro-Phoenician woman disrupts an overemphasis on Jesus’ divinity. Together we will discuss how dismantling the lie of the perfect Jesus can help Christians be more accountable for what we say we believe, and bring a healthier understanding of our faith to bear on the religious & political turmoils that now engulf our world.
The Revd Liz Edman, is an Episcopal Priest, Political Strategist and author of Queer VIrtue: What LGBTQ People Know About Life and Love and How It Can Revitalize Christianity queervirtue.com/about
