Alicia Johnston: In the Image of God

If I were to ask you if you are created in the image of God, what would your answer be? The truth that we are created in the image of God is the most basic and fundamental truth about ourselves and our value.

Join Jo and Dan as they continue their series with Alicia Johnston as we begin our journey into a beautiful theological conversation around being LGBTQ and Christian.

Beginning with what it means to be created in the image of God, the next few episodes in this series will focus on some key biblical arguments and themes that often have been used to marginalise and demonise LGBTQ+ people in the church.

There are beautiful gems to behold as we look back into the bible and learn more about God and us.

The Kickstarter campaign for Alicia’s book The Bible and LGBTQ Adventists starts June 18.

Born and raised in the church, Jo never expected to find himself being pushed out by it. While Jo’s journey of self acceptance and a search for belonging has been challenging, it led him to find a loving God who was far greater than the sum of his painful experiences and hurt and a return to the church of his childhood. He hopes that all will be able to experience, as he has, a love that not only transforms them but also changes the way they see others.
