Thanks to David Bennett for articulating his journey with Jesus and putting together a solid, reasoned theology addressing homosexual attraction for believers. I especially appreciate the way this discussion addresses hard questions of identity, singleness, the definition of Christian family and the Christ-centered life. He also gives good advice to Christians who are trying to figure out how to relate to the LGBT community.

Please take some time to listen – even if only to certain parts that interest you. There’s a menu below, so you can tune into certain parts of the discussion.
