Time & Location
About the Event
Join us as we welcome Dr. Rich McCarty as our May speaker! McCarty holds a Ph.D. in Religious Studies from the University of Iowa. A published author through the State University of New York (SUNY) Press, McCarty’s first book, Sexual Virtue: An Approach to Contemporary Christian Ethics explores new ways for thinking about virtue ethics, natural law, scripture, and church tradition, inclusive of LGBTQ people. His second book with SUNY Press is forthcoming and explores how ideas about the afterlife (or eschatology) might reshape how Christian communities talk about sexual ethics in transformative ways. Dr. McCarty works with a variety of faith communities on the local and regional level, and is part of the national Open and Affirming (LGBTQ welcoming) network of the United Church of Christ.
