The Gay Christian Network
June 10, 2009
Growing up in a religious environment and later discovering your sexuality is at odds with that can be a painful and dangerous experience. Five years ago I found GCN while I was going through such a period and it may have saved my life. If nothing else, it certainly improved my quality of life by providing a space where I was free to be myself and explore my questions and doubts honestly. Since then I've found some of the most amazing friends through the ministry and I wholeheartedly believe in the work they do. The heart and attitude with which they engage both the gay and Christian community is very much what I imagine Christ's response would be. That's in sharp contrast to the tact that many of the mainline churches and preachers take regarding controversial issues such as sexuality.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
make a huge impact on the way Christians view the topic of homosexuality. The resources the leadership have produced are the best I've ever encountered on the subject. Already so much is done with so little. I can't imagine how much more could be done!
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
Donor & I regularly donate to the ministry, I attend as many social events as possible, I volunteer whenever I see that my skills may be of use.
