Our Stories will describe the varied experiences of individuals living in the tension between the evangelical and gay communities.  Some will describe leaving the homosexual lifestyle behind, and others will describe reconciling themselves to their faith and their orientation.  They are offered for your reflection. We begin with Three stories:

  • Paul Fromberg describes his experience with reparative sex therapy, and embracing his homosexuality, in You Don't Have to be Gay.
  • Minister, writer and Soulforce co-founder Mel White explains why he believes that Homosexuality is a Gift from God.
  • Kristin Tembla, in "One Flesh," describes her experiences with same-sex attraction, and her determination to affirm her faith and its traditional stance on marriage.   
  • A Christian professor explains that "I was Not Born Gay" and why he has chosen to live in celibacy rather than engage in same-sex intercourse.
  • A gay student who is a progressive Christian activist says that gays should not be too quick to write off homosexuals, in "Embracing Homosexuality, Embracing Evangelicals."
  • I Miss God, A gay Harvard graduate and former theology student tells the story of his loss of faith.
