Author(s): Maurine C Waun
Amazon UK: More Than Welcome
Standpoint: 1 Fully inclusive and affirming
Genre(s): Contemporary Christian practice and experience, Memoir/autobiography, and Spirituality
Topic(s): Accepting one's sexuality, Discrimination against and hostility towards LGBT+ people, Healing/growing into wholeness, Journeys towards acceptance, and Pastoral issues
Especially suitable for: Those struggling to accept their sexuality or gender identity and Those who are undecided about the homosexuality issue
“Mainline churches,” says Waun, “are so preoccupied with debating the sinfulness of homosexuality that they are missing opportunities to pastor persons who have been turned off by and excluded from the church.”
More Than Welcome tells the story of a pastor who moved from hostile to an affirming position towards LGBT people through meeting and gradually forming friendships with people who are gay. A good book for congregations seeking to become more welcoming to LGBT people.
