God's Design for Sexuality

God created humans in His image, intentionally male and female, each bringing unique and complementary qualities to sexuality and relationships.

Sexuality is a glorious gift from God to be offered back to Him either in marriage for procreation, union and mutual delight or in celibacy for undivided devotion to Christ.

Christians are called to proclaim the truth and beauty of God’s design and the redemption of sexual brokenness in our lives and culture through Jesus Christ.

FRIDAY FIVE: Where Grace Abounds Ministry

Mary Heathman came to Christ at the age of 27. She had dealt with sexual sin for years and through faith in Christ came to understand God’s plan for her as a woman. Ten years later, when her stepson came to her and told her he was gay, she turned to the Lord for guidance. She started Where Grace Abounds, a ministry to help those struggling with same-sex attractions and their families. Where Grace Abounds now has 6 staff members and reaches hundreds of people in Denver. Some of the staff sat down to talk with CitizenLink.

CL: We asked Roger Jones, the executive director, and Scott Kingry, the program director, what led them to the ministry?

Roger: In 1995, I came to Where Grace Abounds just as a participant. I was raised in a Christian home, realized that I had been struggling for a long time with same-sex attractions, and I didn’t know what to do with that. So, in the process of trying to figure that out, I found out about Where Grace Abounds and actually moved to Denver from Texas to participate in the program. I didn’t expect to find what felt like home there among people who understood what I was going through and could relate. It was a safe place to just talk and be myself and wrestle with my sexuality and my faith and how those interact together.
