Church welcomes PRIDE community

Ask Me Anything Event Discusses Community

JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - Issues facing the LGBTQ community were the focus of a special community meeting.

Cornerstone United Methodist Church hosted it’s inaugural Ask Me Anything Community Conversation Sunday night.

Panelists, including those with NEA Pride, talked about they want in the community and within the church.

The Reverend Kathleen McMurray wants to bridge the gap between those within the LGBTQ community and the church.

“When we’re divided, things get difficult,” she said. “By sharing stories and sharing in conversations, even when it’s difficult, particularly when we disagree, that we’re able to be a better community.”

The church will host more Ask Me Anything discussions during the month of October. They will be every Sunday starting at 4 p.m.
