I have a dilema! Does anyone know of an "inclusive" united church in Toronto, that is accepting of all sexual orientations (all people), but that also is more conservative in nature, preaching and worship. I have been searching for a church home that I can feel fed in and one in which I can feel that connection to God in Christ.
As a gay person, do I need to go back into the closet to join a Biblically based, real Spirit filled church????
It seems to me that all the United Churches that I have visited in Toronto are all "inclusive," but are dead or dying. The only messages that I am getting from the pulpit are ones of Social Justice. I do know that there needs to be a balance.
I believe in the Living Christ and I do sense a total absence of the presence of the Holy Spirit in the worship. I am not looking for a "fundamentalist" congregation, but just one that I feel worships the Living God through its praise, messages, and it's witness in the world.
Am I asking for something that just doesn't exist? I have attended the Metropolitan Community Church in Toronto on numerous occasions as well and it is a political/social justice church and even more liberal than the United Churches. I do not want to belong to a "gay club."
Can anyone give me direction or your thoughts?
