Videos & Podcasts

Searching through YouTube and googling "gay and Christian" can generate lists of videos, but where do you begin?  Which will be worth your time and which will enlighten?  The ones listed here are intended to open your eyes to thoughtful consideration of a side you may not have considered previously.  

None of the videos claim to draw conclusions that each of us must agree with. Every speaker presents the paths they have traveled, the turmoil they have endured and describes where they stand today.  All of the videos share an approach that is full of Jesus' love, leaving you to determine for yourself.  None are the type that demand you choose one side or another; each recognizes that understanding is a journey.
