Common + Unity = Community. God in His perfect wisdom has not only created us with a need for individual identity, He created us for a sense of belonging in community. So, why is that sometimes a challenge for people with SSA? How can we, as a church, be approachable for everyone including the person with SSA? In today’s video, Alan shares a poignant analogy first shared by our friend Joe Dallas which illustrates the beauty of consistent community.

I am thrilled to be a part of the Body of Christ. Though imperfect, I see a tremendous groundswell of truth, compassion, grace, and service, which accurately reflects the heart of Jesus Christ.
Contrast that to 1991, the year I sought support for my struggles with sexuality outside of the four walls and community of my local congregation. I was afraid of being cast out because my story was different. I had no confidence in the church’s ability to treat me kindly or extend grace. I will never know whether my perceptions of them were right or wrong. I simply couldn’t risk what I believed would be my reality if I “came out” to them. So I sought help from Exodus International.
