Just As I Am:
Homosexuality's Radical Challenge to the Church

Behind the headline-generating debates on same-sex marriage, how effective is the Church’s ministry? How can Christians do better at being God‘s hands and feet to those who experience same-gender attraction?

Read this exclusive interview with Wendy Gritter of New Direction for Life Ministries of Canada. Her ministry serves people who grapple with homosexuality and equips the Church to minister to homosexuals effectively and compassionately. Interview by regular Faith Today writer Patricia Paddey.
