I have been harmed by the church and I want to ensure others do not experience similar pain. I want to advocate for change in the church and healing for those who have been harmed. Reconciliation between the church and LGBTQIA people must starts with public accountability and acknowledgment of the harm done. I was a children's minister for 10 years, I think & pray often of the children who were under my care who I know statistically 1/4 of are LGBTQIA & their families. We must do better for them.
