Sit down, relax and know that you are most welcome here.
This is a place of conversation and learning for all people, but it was specifically created by and for people involved with The Salvation Army so that the voices of LGBTQI+ persons can be heard and celebrated. Though some members of the LGBTQ+ community have found a spiritual home within the Salvation Army, we recognize that many still struggle to be included, with people of diverse sexualities and gender (DSG) sometimes feeling shamed, humiliated or even driven out of our part of the church.
We affirm the creation of all people in the image of God, seeking to discern and respond to that image respectfully, with love and compassion. We hope that you will find INCLUDED to be encouraging, challenging and perhaps even inspiring.
