Diversity of life forms – opportunity for the churches
Churches are not always at ease with the variety and colorfulness of life forms. The image of the “classic family” largely shapes theological thinking and church action.
This workshop is led by a gay couple. Experiences with different forms of life should have their say and the theological arguments of the longstanding discussion process about homo-sexuality in the Protestant Churches in Austria will be discussed. The question of what chances there are for church action if it engages with the diversity of life forms will be central.
The workshop is held in German.
Preparation and realization: FI Mag. Peter Pröglhöf and Rev. Dr. Peter Gabriel, Protestant Lutheran Church in Austria in cooperation with the “platform LSM” (lesbian, gay and bisexual employees in the Protestant Churches in Austria)
Venue: Messe Congress Graz
