The purpose of the ESA blog is to facilitate loving conversation; please know that individual authors do not speak for ESA as a whole. Even if you don\'t see yourself or your experience reflected in something you read here, we invite you to experience it anyway, and see if God can meet you there. What can take away from considering this point of view? What might you add? The comments section below is where you can share the answers to those questions, if you feel so moved. Please express your thoughts in ways that are constructive, purposeful, and respectful. Give those you disagree with the benefit of the doubt, and assume they are neither idiots nor evil. Name-calling, sweeping condemnations, and any other comments that suggest you have forgotten that we are all children of God will be deleted. Thank you!

    I am so deeply sorry you don’t feel accepted by the Church. It grieves me that this is the reality in the American Church. It is an issue that makes me question everyday why I am part of an institution that excludes people and I still have not decided how to personally address it. My daughter is a member of the LGBT community and sometimes I feel I am one homophobic comment away from leaving the Church. Be encouraged that the true Church loves and accepts you as does our Lord. Thank you for your essay.
