    I last went to church in 2010-2011. I was actively involved in the church – server, Sunday school leader, considering vocation to the ordained ministry. I have been in a monogamous same sex relationship for 4.5 years now and feel God is calling me back to church. However I want to be accepted for who I am – as it is only a part of who I am. I found you on the website – and hope I can re connect with Church.
