New Ways Ministry launches “Journeys”


“I tell you now that I will lead you out of your oppression… to a land flowing with milk and honey” (Exodus 3:17)

A Scripture Reflection Series for LGBT People and Allies

JOURNEYS is an invitation to walk with our ancestors, discover the great source of love, and celebrate our identities as children of God and LGBT persons and allies of faith. Each ‘journey’ contains a section of Scripture, followed by questions for reflection. These questions can be used for personal meditation, journalling, or group conversations.

With these scripture passages, you can travel through the sands of the Bible and find your place in the Divine Story. Whether you are fleeing from “hardened” Pharaohs (Exodus 14:8), feel the urge to dance with abandon (2 Samuel 6) or pray with a heavy heart (Luke 22:41) these passages encourage you to wrestle with God and “not let go until you feel the divine blessing” (Genesis 32: 22-32).

The “Journeys” series was prepared by Dwayne Fernandes, a New Ways Ministry staff member who was trained as a spiritual guide at the Washington Theological Union.
