Sunday, February 14th, 3:00pm
Christ the Servant Lutheran Church, 506 Appia Way, Louisville, CO.

America’s Evangelical churches have shown inconsistency in how they respond to the transgender community. Drawing on workshops she presented at the PFLAG National Convention and at the Gay Christian Network national conference, Rev. Dr. Paula Williams will explain the current Evangelical landscape as it relates to LGBTQ issues. She will allow plenty of time for questions, and strategizing an approach to Evangelical churches.

Dr. Paula Williams was the CEO of one of America’s largest church planting organizations, a preaching pastor at two megachurches, a magazine editor, and a seminary instructor. After 35 years in New York, Paula moved to Lyons, Colorado, where she currently serves as a pastoral counselor and church consultant. Paula has three grown children and five granddaughters.


January Event: Straight Spouses

Sunday, January 10th, 3:00pm
First United Methodist Church, 350 11th Avenue, Longmont, CO 80501.

When Carol Grever’s husband came out in 1991, she came to Boulder PFLAG for support and information. At the time, few books or resources addressed the issues of mixed-orientation marriages; little was known about it. Under PFLAG’s auspices, chapter president Jean Hodges helped form the city’s first Straight Spouse Network support group to help Carol and other straight spouses who came forward.

Since then, Carol has become a recognized authority on this complicated issue. Her books and documentary inform and empower straight spouses and their families. She also maintains a blog, http://www.straightspouseconnection.com/, that has received well over 100,000 hits, and also does peer counseling locally. Carol will give the PFLAG program on January 10, speaking on straight spouse stages of recovery and personal lessons from her own experience.

Carol Grever is a writer and recognized spokesperson on straight spouse recovery. She has published two books and produced a documentary about mixed-orientation relationships. She’s been interviewed on radio shows on three continents and has appeared on network television, including The Oprah Winfrey Show, Anderson Cooper 360, Good Morning America, and The Early Show. Her latest book is a collection of poetry, Glimpses, that effectively depicts an evolving life. She is also a physical fitness enthusiast and is a long-time volunteer instructor at the Mapleton Y.
