On Friday, October 28, 25 clergy members from different denominations will gather for a day-seminar, in Kampala, on what the Bible does and does not say about homosexuality. The Coordinator for Other Sheep in Uganda will lead in teaching the seminar. He will be assisted, in teaching, by one other individual, also Ugandan, who has learned, and taught, in peer-training seminars on this topic. 25 pastors are expected to attend. The cost, which includes the place of meeting (the hall/venu), breakfast and lunch, and a handout (other Internet materials will be shown like the “Blue Book“), is $15.00 USA Dollars. Participants of the seminar will provide for their own transportation costs.
Background: Other Sheep first visited Uganda in 2007, and in 2008 had its first seminar. The current Coordinator for Other Sheep in Uganda was in attendance at the 2008 seminar while a university student (you can read his history with Other Sheep here). In 2015, Other Sheep Uganda distributed 4,000 books of The Children Are Free – on what the Bible does and does not say about homosexuality, and conducted peer-training seminars. This past summer 2016, four peer-training seminars were conducted in Uganda and additional books distributed. Since 2015, Other Sheep has had high visibility through negative Christian radio broadcasts, parliament denouncements, and other social media output, which has had a positive effect in pastors clamoring to know more. They want this information. The opportunity is great to further education towards a positive view of the Bible and homosexuality.
