In 1988, I remember the struggle, the anger, indifference of some. I wish for resolution, through ongoing dialogue, education, support of differing views. I’d like to tell GLBTQ Christians that they are welcome, accepted, and do not give up hope.
I regret that I did not become more vocal, involved with the church community. I realize there was hurt on all sides.
Alice, your story was similar to the decision and behaviour in my 1988 church. It brought out the former/old feelings from 1988 for me.
God help me/us to move forward, to be more welcoming to others and their views, interested in their lives.
