"I avoided knocking on the door of the same-sex couple in my ward... and now I REGRET IT!"
When I served as bishop I knew there were two men living in a same-sex relationship in my ward. I knew that one of them was a returned missionary, but I assumed he didn't want me, his bishop, knocking on his door. There was a mutual understanding that I wouldn't bother them if they wouldn't bother me. It's not that I didn't want to talk with them, but mainly, I didn't want it to be awkward. I figured they had zero interest in the gospel and so why should I insert myself into their life?
I really regret it now. It was an opportunity for deeper understanding and the start of a stronger community. They didn't have to agree with their bishop in order to have a relationship with him.
Maybe you can think of a similar situation in your ward. Or maybe there is an active member who is still wrestling with their sexual orientation or gender identity. Like me, you probably don't have the knowledge or understand of how to effectively minister to these individuals.
This online conference will give you the ability to start ministering in a confident manner and to effectively reach out to those in your community who are LGBT.
