Experiencing True Community

Imagine a place of unconditional acceptance….. A place where everyone around you is willing to be a friend even if you don’t know them. Imagine a place where you know that you have something deeply personal in common with everyone around you, even if you have no clue who they are. Imagine a place where you will walk away with a new friend simply by asking the question, “What’s your story?”

The 2013 Gay Christian Network Conference was held in Phoenix January 10 Р13 and I had the privilege of attending on behalf of New Direction. I went last year and had an incredibly positive and moving experience so I was definitely looking forward to being there again.  But I was unsure if it would have the same impact it did last year.  Well the highlight, in both experiences, was the incredible sense of community.
