Imagine if your biggest life struggle was only mentioned at church as part of a joke, an insult, or to illustrate a culture war. What if the sentence, “If you need prayer for [blank], we’re here for you,” never included your struggle? Now imagine your struggle was rooted in a desire for companionship and belonging. That is the experience of many of our friends who grew up in church while experiencing unwanted same sex attraction. In our time together we will reflect on key markers in the lived experience for the purpose of growing in our capacity to be good brothers and sisters in Christ for those who are seeking to honor God with their sexuality while experiencing unwanted same sex attraction.
