God created us to live lives of passion, purpose, and delight, but shame, fear and loneliness too often rob us of this fullness of life. These two workshops—one for men, another for women—will discuss the unique causes and consequences of shame, fear and loneliness for sexual minority believers, while exploring ways to combat these experiences and live life to the full as God intended.
