A Focus Series


Showing love to same-sex attracted people
Inside this Series

Same-sex attraction can be a difficult and lonely struggle. On this page you’ll find personal stories of how Christ met individuals in that struggle. And you’ll hear how believers can play a life-giving, hope-restoring role by walking alongside someone struggling with same-sex attraction, and by providing the sense of belonging to a faith community. Parents will find guidance, too, on how to preserve their relationship with a child who comes out as gay.
