Toward welcoming and affirming Christian communities
Looking Back at the Forum’s Annual Conference 2018
Last May, we (Frans, 24, and Matthijs, 26) visited the Forum’s annual conference for the first time. Just after coming home from the conference, this is what Matthijs wrote on Facebook: “Tired but very inspired by the annual conference of the European Forum for LGBT Christian Groups that took place near Rome the last couple of days. This group of people truly feels like family on so many levels. Somehow, I feel like I found a long lost piece of myself. Thank you to all these sweet and brave soul mates of mine, I love you for real.”
Now, a few months after the conference took place, we cannot describe this feeling much better. Even though regular life has buried our emotions to a certain extent, we can say that the Forum’s conference impacted our lives on a deep level.
