A Christian approach and response to same-sex attraction and marriage in an increasingly secular and hostile context

Abstract
Through the use of specific bible studies, discussions, and role plays the author worked to equip his congregation with a better understanding and appreciation of what God's word teaches concerning same sex attraction and marriage with a view toward enabling the congregation's members to engage our community, family and friends. He addressed the lack of awareness concerning his own congregation's own divergent views about same-sex attraction and marriage through the use of internal surveys and interviews. The author also used surveys and interviews to engage a local community college to learn about views on homosexuality from people outside the congregation. The results were that the congregation gained awareness on the issue and is now better equipped to engage and support individuals, family and friends struggling with sexual identity issues.
