Queerness and Faith

June 4, 2021

Far too often, queer Christians have been made to feel that the reconciliation of their faith and sexuality requires endless defense and explanation to others. Yet, the truth is that queerness as an orientation to faith and life can enrich the spirituality of all Christians and help renew the church. A queer faith centers radical hospitality and radical love in imitation of a God who can only be called promiscuous in the most transformative sense.

Rev. Tonetta Landis-Aina is a native of North Carolina and moved to Washington DC in 2004. She holds a Masters of Divinity from Wesley Theological Seminary and is passionate about marginalized people finding their stories in scripture as well as about the new shapes the church will take in the 21st century. When Tonetta isn't geeking out on the Bible or trying to piece together what God might be doing in this beautitul city, she is enjoying time with her wife and 2.5 year old son who loves to assure everyone that he's grumpy.
