GENEROUS SPACE GROUPS

COMING TOGETHER

Generous Space (GS) groups are communities of LGBTQ+ Christians (along with some straight/cisgender friends and family) who meet regularly for peer support, conversation, friendship, and prayer. Many LGBTQ+ Christians feel isolated and misunderstood both in their churches and in the wider LGBTQ+ community. GS groups provide an opportunity for LGBTQ+ people to share their stories and learn from one another in a Christ-centered environment, one where those who no longer identify as Christians also find belonging. Rather than endlessly debating the ethics of same-sex marriage, they can discuss all sorts of topics without having to be singled out as the “token” LGBTQ+ Christian. Participants come with diverse experiences and perspectives, so there is also opportunity to practice loving one another, shaped by the values of humility, hospitality, mutuality and justice. Together, we seek to better understand one another, and to move away from fear and shame toward love.

CULTIVATING SAFER SPACES

Pursuing generous space is beautiful and life-giving, yet also necessarily risky, difficult, and sometimes controversial. That is why we differentiate between safety and comfort in our opening vision statement. While a certain level of discomfort in some conversation is sometime necessary or inevitable, we are also committed to preventing physical, mental, emotional and spiritual harm to our group members. For that reason, our groups regularly discuss their commitment to confidentiality, permission-giving (the freedom to opt out of activities), and consent (including but limited to physical touch). Our priority is the health and safety of all members.
