ReconcilingWorks: Lutherans for Full Participation advocates for the full inclusion of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Lutherans in all aspects of the life of their Church and congregations.
We provide a place of comfort and safety. We reach out to teach that Christ's message, the Gospel, is for everyone equally. We advocate for systemic change in policy and practice in church and society, working to alleviate not only the painful symptoms of oppression but also to eliminate its root causes.
Gaychurch.org is a gay affirming Christian web site that contains one of the largest world-wide gay "welcoming" church directories and gay Christian bulletin boards in the world. The site also contains numerous articles on a wide range of subjects as well as in-depth studies on reconciling ones faith with their sexual orientation. These articles are presented in both English and Spanish. The site also features a Christian art gallery.
Being a Christian can sometimes be difficult, but being a gay Christian can prove to be more complicated.
