As a people who believe in God, we all have spiritual needs. If you understand yourself to be a sexual minority, you want to be a Christian without having to hide who you really are, but also find your Christian values are not always accepted in the gay community. If you are heterosexual, your experiences may have shown that some people you love have gone through great pain because of who they are in relation to the church.
We are all wonderfully created in the image our God. Regardless of our sexual orientation, we are all part of the full spectrum of God's human creation, a rainbow of diversity. Sexuality is a gift from our creator, not a choice we consciously make. Rather, a choice is the decision of how we express who we are.
As Christians we believe we are empowered to be a model of the Gospel, loving our fellow human beings and promoting justice for all. All too often, churches have used scripture to condemn people for many things including their God-given nature. Even Lutheran churches, which emphasize grace, have been quick to judge.
ReconcilingWorks helps people reconcile their spirituality and sexuality in an uplifting way. We seek to minister to people who the institutional church often shuns. We also seek to lead the church to live the Gospel to the fullest, affirming sexual diversity, as we all grow in faith and understanding of God's grace.
