    In this third episode, we continue our series on pro-gay theology as we read Guy Hammond's new book 'Gay and Christian?'

    We discuss some of the key biblical interpretations that support pro-gay theology. Why didn't Jesus mention homosexuality? Aren't we called not to judge as Christians? And how could the biblical authors have understood the monogamous and loving gay relationships we see today? Let's discuss!

This podcast touches my heart

Listening to your podcast is a refreshment to my day. Someone very close to me is SSA and God has truly blessed my family’s relationship with this person through the information and counseling in SIW. Yet, as life goes on I can still feel so ill equipped for him. Your podcast gives me a window into his soul, particularly since he is not a disciple of God. Also, I am surprised to see how much you’re sharing is helpful for my own thought processes. Just listening to your openness and perseverance through struggle helps me with my own private struggles and self perception. Thank you so much for sharing so candidly and from the heart. You are both very brave and are deeply appreciated. I know God is so proud of you. ♥️

Thank You

Thank you for doing this. As a mom of five and a youth leader, I so appreciate the insights, the sharing, the vulnerability. I listened to the first episode today. I will binge through the rest and then send you some questions.
