On Friday, November 7th, Rev. Dr. David Gushee spoke to the McCormick community about his new book, Changing Our Mind. In the book, Dr. Gushee acknowledges his responsibility is the reading of scripture that helped create tensions between religious families and their LGBT family members. “Pushing peacemaking and urban violence together with LGBT rights helped me find the intersection of these 2 issues,” Dr. Gushee remarked. His opening statements heavily focused on the homeless youth population in the United States.
