Yet another LGBT teen suicide reminds us that teaching children about sexual orientation & gender diversity is no longer an option; it is imperative at home AND in church. A wonderful resource is available to help in both settings, “All God’s Children,” by Melany Burrill. It’s available at Amazon for $7, but you can get bulk rate through the Institute for Welcoming Resources. Consider, too, ordering a photo exhibit from the Family Diversity Project to display at your church. Especially appropriate in this context is “Love Makes a Family.” Both resources may be easily found on an internet search, or contact us for more information. Whatever you do, do something to communicate to the children of your church that God’s children are all different, all made in God’s image, all loved by God.
