Be the Bridge: Connecting the LGBTQIA+ Community and People of Faith

Dec 13, 2017

My guest on this 12th episode is a woman who believes that if she can change her mind about faith and sexuality, then anyone can. 
Liz Dyer is a mama bear who is changing the world, by not only helping educate and support mothers like herself but by inspiring others to make the world a safer and kinder place for LGBT folks to live. 
She was raised Southern Baptist and believed that gay relationships were sinful. But when her son came out to her his sophomore year of college, she decided to look deeper into the Bible and her faith. She fully expected to prove to her son the error of his ways, but instead, she found that the Bible does not condemn loving and committed same-sex relationships. And in her view, it was a sin to suggest otherwise.
Liz is the founder and manager of "Serendipitydodah for Moms," a private Facebook group for open-minded Christian moms who have LGBTQ kids and want to develop and maintain healthy, loving, authentic relationships with their LGBTQ kids.
