Biography

Equal Treatment for LGBTQIA People

As a More Light/Open and Affirming congregation (these are denominational labels given in the Presbyterian church USA and the United Church of Christ for such congregations) we welcome lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people and their families in to the full life and leadership of the congregation. We sponsor gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender candidates for ministry, perform union ceremonies, advocate in favor of civil marriage equality, testify for equal treatment at Presbytery meetings, and financially support the More Light and Open and Affirming ministries within our denominations. Tabernacle is a sponsoring member of the Philadelphia area YES! Coalition, and has provided space and volunteer support for Soulforce, WOW, and NGLTF’s National Religious Leadership Roundtable. In addition, we are a founding charter congregation that is a mission partner to the Incarnation Institute for Sex & Faith teaching an inclusive, science-friendly, and sex-positive Christianity. This ministry, founded by a former member of Tab, helps people love their bodies (and the bodies of others) as God does and offers resources, classes, and webinars highlighting an incarnational gospel of God-on-the-flesh. Two members of the congregation are profiled on the LGBTQIA Religious Archives Network website for their pioneering work.
