Since Rev. Dr. Jeri E. Williams is an American Baptist pastor, people assume having a gay son must be devastating and contradictory to her beliefs. In some extremes, people even recommended conversion therapy or disowning her own son. But, in reality, having a gay son has driven her to be even stronger in standing up to the bullies and to demonstrate she would do anything for him, just as she would for any of her children.
In an effort to stop the hurt and help people love one another, no matter who we are or whom we love, she presents an insightful exploration of how one small church has made an overwhelmingly large difference in the lives of many of God’s children who have been ostracized by the church-at-large. Everyone Should Have a Gay Son shares Williams’ story, a story that’s been guided by the Holy Spirit, in hopes that you’ll find your own pathway on the road to acceptance.
Everyone Should Have a Gay Son reveals a pastor’s journey beyond the church’s exclusion of the LGBTQ+ community to a stance of inclusion – from growing up thinking homosexuality is a sin to an absolute belief that it is not.
