Maybe you know the story of the prodigal child in Luke chapter 15. Perhaps you feel like you are living in that story right now. Your son or daughter, or very significant loved one, has chosen to live apart from you and in a way that is very different from your way of life. Years of relationship seem set aside by the departure. Your heart feels stretched beyond what feels bearable, and sometimes the bond feels forever severed.
What do you do when a loved one tells you that he or she is going to live a life that embraces a gay-identity? What do you do in the midst of the complexity of your own emotions, the ‘leaving’ of the loved one, and the fear of conflict and difficulty if the relationship is continued?
You are not alone. Prodigal Ministries is here to help. There are others like you who participate in a twice a month support group for parents and loved ones who are connected to someone in same gender attraction or other forms of gender confusion. This support group is called H.O.P.E. and is a safe environment where you can share your thoughts and feelings and receive practical, Biblically sound suggestions.
Prodigal Ministries is for the strengthening of the relationship.
If you’d like to learn more about our support group for loved ones, please contact us. Your confidentiality will be respected.
