"Christian leaders need to get to know and build relationships with those in their congregation who identify as LGBT. Spend time with a lesbian couple, get to know a gay man, ask questions of the LGBT people who don’t attend your church.
Listen to people. Hear their stories. Each person is a mosaic of experiences, hurts, joys, upbringing, beliefs, and more. Let me say it another way — treat people like people, not like evangelistic projects. So, get to know them."
