FAMILY CHAT: THE FRIENDSHIPS THAT SURVIVE
"We encourage each other to live with conviction, honesty, integrity, and vulnerability. We trust that the others in our circle of friends have also prayed for thousands of hours and cried the particular tears of shame that only queer kids cry. We understand that our queer Christian friends, regardless of what they believe, have known loneliness, rejection, loss, and disappointment, and we want them to know we’re here to support them without qualification or condition. We want each other to know that this friendship is a safe place for them to be confused, and it’s a safe place for them to have convictions that rub us the wrong way because this is a safe place"
