Why would an openly gay graduate student in theology choose to join The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints one month after the policy change?
Come to The Hearth this Sunday, October 16, at 7:00 and hear Derek Knox's story of conversion and choosing to be baptized as an openly and proudly gay man. Derek is an engaging speaker with tremendous knowledge of the scriptures and the writings of the prophets and a great enthusiasm for studying and sharing the Gospel. This will be a lively evening of theology, testimony, and a unique perspective on the Church. Derek Knox was baptized in December, 2015, and currently serves as the ward mission leader in his Boston ward. As always, there will be light refreshments and great conversations afterward.
