A new article in the October 2021 issue of the Liahona speaks directly to members who identify as gay or lesbian or experience same-sex attraction. The article seeks to offer hope and understanding for Church members who can feel confused about their place in the Church.
“Your feelings may seem to be at odds with a lot of expectations,” the article says. “You may wonder: ‘Why is this happening to me? Does God really love me? Is there a place for me in His kingdom?’”
The article then offers four reminders to those who are struggling:
- God Loves You
- You Belong
- Turn to God—He Will Help You
- You Can Find Peace
