Reasoning Together: A Conversation on Homosexuality
The book is available in the university bookstore and will be for sale at the close of the program.

Ted Grimsrud and Mark Thiessen Nation, EMU and EMS theologians and professors, respectively, have taken on an issue that continues to vex and divide the Christian church – homosexuality.

They will draw from their book, Reasoning Together: A Conversation on Homosexuality (Herald Press, November, 2008) in discussing and debating all sides of the issue in an open forum 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 19, in Strite Conference Room 105 on first floor of EMU’s Campus Center. See campus map.

Dr. Grimsrud and Dr. Thiessen Nation “will engage in respectful yet passionate give-and-take over the differences between them as well as areas of agreement and consensus and field audience questions,” said Brian Martin Burkholder, EMU campus pastor.

“This event, part of a year-long campus emphasis on ‘Embodying Sexual Wholeness in a Broken World,’ is designed for people who want to hear more than one angle on this challenging issue,” Martin Burkholder stated.

Grimsrud’s and Thiessen’s book is available in the university bookstore and will be for sale at the close of the program. The authors will be available for book signings.

The event is sponsored by EMU campus ministries. For more information, contact Martin Burkholder at 540-432-4115.
