"We're getting married!" You expected to hear these words from your child, but you never dreamed you would be asked to bless a same-sex union. How should you respond when your gay child says, "I do"?
This minibook from Harvest USA, a ministry for people struggling with sexual issues, shows parents how the parable of the prodigal son offers them a practical, grace-filled model for interacting with their own wayward adult child. Parents are guided through possible responses that communicate grace and truth to their child while positioning them to actively trust God and wait with hope for his intervention.
