April 14 at 7:00 PM in Los Angeles
Bishop Bob Rees will be speaking at a tri-stake fireside tonight at 7:00 in the Westwood Chapel (on the temple grounds in West LA) about the LDS responsibility to love our LGBT members. If you would like to attend or know of anyone who might be interested in coming, we are told they are welcome.
A speaker at the Affirmation 2012 Conference devotional, Bishop Rees is the co-author of “Supportive Families, Healthy Children: Helping Latter-day Saint Families with Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Children”–hailed by many as the best resource for LDS parents and leaders who are dealing with LGBT children in their families and congregations.
In addition to his writings on LGBT people and the Church, Bob is well known in the LDS community for his explorations of other LDS-related issues, from the Book of Mormon to Mormons in politics.
The former editor of Dialogue: A Journal of Mormon Thought, Bob continues to make significant contributions to Mormon scholarship through Dialogue, Sunstone magazine, Brigham Young University Press, Signature Books, and other venues.
