Rejecting Rejection: Finding Myself as a GLBTI Ally
7.30pm, 26th of October
Booth College of Mission Chapel
There is little that breaks hearts or raises hackles like the discussion of the church’s attitudes and actions towards GLBTI people. Major Christina Tyson will talk about her own journey, from mixed feelings over the Army’s official (but not unified) opposition to Homosexual Law Reform in the 1980s, to marching as a Salvationist in this year’s Wellington Pride Parade.
Major Christina Tyson heads up The Salvation Army’s Communications team and is also editor of the Army’s War Cry magazine. She has been a Salvation Army officer since 1992 and has a Bachelor’s degree in Journalism from Monash University. Christina is married to Keith, a chaplain at The Salvation Army’s Bridge programme for addictions in Newtown.
We look forward to seeing you there…
