Welcoming But Not Affirming

Church with rainbow in the sky above

Christians have been caught off guard as culture is accelerating an acceptance for all things LGBTIQ+ and offering both truth and grace towards people who experience same-sex attraction is becoming confusing and difficult.

In this Focus on the Family podcast, Shirley Baskett is an Australian ordained pastor who supports same sex attracted individuals and their families.

She has recently completed her PhD in pastoral practices to same-sex attracted Christians in welcoming but not affirming churches, and we will discuss her findings of what she found helpful and not helpful when responding to same-sex individuals in the church.
