Reading puts us in contact with ideas and experiences not our own. It lifts us up and out of ourselves, while at the same time shedding light and forming connections on the interior level.
Reading is an act of humility. It admits there are things we don’t know yet, and that others in the world have something to tell us, something earned and of value.
Discussing what you read enables a further layer of discovery, challenge, and solidarity with others engaging the same questions.
We find this process indispensable for growth as a person. We hope you will too.

Many - even those with solid, honest community - know few others who are in the same situation. To live an integrated life - and live it well - there are things that need
to be in the light.
When it comes to the deeper wrestlings with sexuality and spirituality, it can be helpful to have healthy conversations with others who “get it.”
Young adult men and women who experience same-sex desires or gender discordance and seek to grow in Christ-centered community.

| OUR SUMMER READ |
This Summer, we'll be revisiting a more expansive version of our Inheritance Series.
These blogs & additional supplemental reading materials serve as an invitation to all believers and speak to the charisms and values of Eden Invitation.
"Our inheritance from God is simpler than it may appear. Thanks to Jesus Christ, our inheritance is wild, gratuitous, undeserved grace. Our inheritance is the promise of the Kingdom of Heaven, a final destination and yet, somehow, revealed in the here and now. And you aren’t disinherited if you’re queer."
