Loving Your LGBTQ+ Neighbor: A Resource Guide
Love is love. Gender is fluid. Trans rights are human rights.
These are all phrases we see every day. Whether in the news, social media, or on a sign in a business window, the conversations surrounding the LGBTQ+ community are everywhere. As a church, knowing how to respond and navigate these conversations and our convictions can be challenging. However, we know that as believers, we are called to share and show the love of Christ to ALL PEOPLE because we are all created by God. So, how can we do both?
We have taken some time to compile resources for you and for you to share with others. We hope they will be helpful to each of you as you navigate this topic and conversations.
