Candice shared her dilemma. Her Aunt Marina and cousin Maris are coming to her house in December for a family gathering. Maris is openly homosexual, and Marina is a fundamental Christian. Maris is comical and easy going – Marina is nice but feels very convicted about her Christian values, which include being a homosexual equals being sinful. I’m glad they are both coming, but afraid of the dinner together and possible topics that may come up. Lately Maris feels he must promote homosexuality as natural and healthy, while I know Marina will struggle and feel she has to uphold her faith. How can I get through dinner and enjoy myself without a knotted stomach?
