LATEST POST: How to Speak clearlY

Wherever they fall on the spectrum, from full inclusion without caveat to fully, vocally unaffirming, churches should be clear about where they stand (or whether they're still trying to figure that out.) Thrashing is fine. We've all been there. But please, for the love of Jesus (literally), be honest and don't hide it (whatever it is). Where a congregation stands on LGBTQ is important to me as an ally of LGBTQ persons. I always would rather know what I'm walking into-and, more importantly, what my LGBTQ loved ones might be walking into, than not know. Open, honest, transparent. These are things that all churches aspire to be. So, wherever you are on LGBTQ, own it and let the rest of us know, too. |Thank you. And God bless us all.
