Sam Allberry, author of Is God anti-gay?, will be coming to University of Idaho on Wednesday March 5th at 7:30pm. Sam’s story of God’s goodness and deliverance in the midst of same sex attraction (SSA) is a powerful testimony greatly needed for those struggling with this temptation.
Here is a short promo video:
The Facebook event:
And a short interview with Sam on LivingOut.org:
Sam became a Christian on his 18th birthday and after graduating from college, he began graduate studies at Cornhill Training Course in London. Sam went on to train at Wycliffe Hall in Oxford (2000-2003), then served at St Ebbe’s Church in central Oxford (2003-2008), leading their ministry to undergraduate students. Since 2008 Sam has been an associate pastor at St Mary’s Church in Maidenhead (which is just down the road from Windsor). In late 2012 Sam shared with his church family his long-term struggle with same-sex attraction.
In 2013 Sam wrote “Is God Anti-Gay?” and helped to set up the website LivingOut.org. Both of these are attempts to help Christians with SSA, along with the wider church and a watching world, to know that God’s word is both clear and unfathomably good on this issue. Since then he has had a growing number of opportunities to speak more widely on this, and he is keen to help churches be places of compassion and clarity for those struggling with SSA.
