Change happens most powerfully person to person – loved one to loved one. Many American Christians need help in order to stand with LGBT friends and families without leaving their faith behind. The Friends & Family Plan gives LGBT people and allies the support and expert data we need to help our conflicted Christian loved ones – as Christians – support LGBT equality. The Friends & Family Plan will help you to discuss issues of love, sexuality, and gender in Christian terms with your conflicted loved one. The Plan draws on Bible passages, insights to sway skeptical literalists, and gentle conversation strategies to ease the tension that may build during conversation.
