Have you ever wondered what people think of you? As my husband is Alan Chambers, the President of Exodus International, I have. At present, he is somewhat of a conundrum for a lot of people. There seems to be some confusion about who he is, what he is saying and what he stands for. Here it is in a nutshell: while he has repeatedly stated his biblically orthodox view of sexuality, he has also stated his belief that one particular sin is not some how more offensive to God than another.

Question of the Week – Why Is Church Important for People With SSA?

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.
