Laurence Koo: A Call for the American Church to Welcome Single (LGBTQ) Believers

“I think we can be really strong in our conviction [about sexuality]…but at the same time, that doesn’t mean that in our posture toward the LGBTQ community, we cannot be full of love and grace.”

“Learning also from secular Europe and living there and ministering there, we really need to define sometimes what the truth is that people need to hear when they first encounter us or when they first encounter Jesus…what is true gospel good news to people who are lost and searching?”

“[To young people struggling with their sexuality], first of all, know that you are loved by the Father and that he wants to embrace you, he still embraces you in the middle of all this messiness and confusion. Second, don’t carry this alone.”

“You cannot control what your children are choosing their journey to be, but you can choose to still be their parent and wanting to be in relationship.”
