Hearing that someone you love has committed themselves to a gay lifestyle often leads to a lot of difficult, raw emotions. While there is a time and a place for them, rarely do they communicate Jesus' love well. We all need the forgiveness that comes through faith in Christ, regardless of our sexual practice. As you strive to love those in your midst, be intentional about serving with kindness in addition to having conversations filled with truth.
