Faith and Our Families
Affirming faith and loving LGBTQ persons
Many clergy, Biblical scholars, theologians, and congregants do both. In our brochure “For Parents Of Faith And Their Families” we’ve suggested some ways that affirming religions think about issues of sexual orientation and gender identity. We recognize this booklet is just a beginning. Many people will want to look more closely at scriptural commentaries and theological studies in their own religious traditions. To help you with your search, we’ve gathered together a variety of resources both online and in print which may interest you.
