Below is information from our friends in Singapore about an upcoming online event.
2020 has been quite a major year of shaking and opportunity for the church. And we are excited that God has led us to organise a Zoom event that will feature Jesus’ love and grace in the lives of Christians who once identify themselves as LGBTQ+. These are brothers and sisters from all over the world. US, UK, Japan, Taiwan, Thailand, Malaysia, Australia, Malta, Russia, Taiwan, Paraguay just to name a few.
This is more than an event, this will be an epiphany of God’s love. Many in your church will be encouraged, inspired by the faithfulness of these who sought not their will but God’s will in their lives. We will hear also from some who are living with HIV, post-sex op regrets, abuse survivors and how they were graced by God.
Global Home-Coming Festival is a one day gathering of people who are overcoming same-sex attraction from all over the world. It is hosted online over Zoom on December 19, 2020 (Saturday) over 3 sessions throughout the day. All the sessions are different, so please sign up for all.
We are inviting the global church to join us to recognise and celebrate the ongoing victory of our brothers and sisters. This is especially important during the holiday season as many Christians who are struggling with same-sex attraction do feel especially lonely during festive seasons like Thanksgiving and Christmas. Your presence matters. Let’s sound the global clarion call that they are not alone. We are not alone. God is here with us.
