From the author of Messy Grace, a former pastor raised by gay parents, delivers a compassionate playbook to help Christians, church staff, and ministry leaders create a culture of belonging without sacrificing theological convictions.
 
What should we do? This is a question many Christians ask as they face shifting societal norms, conflicting opinions, and often inaccurate scriptural interpretations regarding those who identify as LGBTQ+.
 
Caleb Kaltenbach believes the more helpful question is: What am I willing to do to keep and build influence with _____________?
 
Caleb understands that our love for others is best measured by the lengths and depths we'll go to help them. He also realizes that people find and follow Jesus best in community, rather than in isolation. As a child, raised by three activist gay parents, Caleb experienced firsthand the outrage of some Christians. That's why he is committed to fostering a sense of belonging for all people.
 
True community only happens when Christians are intentional in infusing their attitudes, systems, and values with grace and truth. This hopeful, practical book provides tools for encouraging church involvement, strengthening personal relationships, increasing empathy, and engaging in pivotal conversations about grace and truth with our whole community.
 
Fostering a culture of belonging is a messy process, but it holds a massive possibility for everyone involved: a growing relationship with Jesus.
