“Why has this conflict shown up with such ferocity?” Sara Wenger Shenk asks, referring to the irreconcilable dilemma we’re faced with around sexual orientation, In her post, The DNA of Unity and Diversity in God's Image, on Practicing Reconciliation, Sara writes:

"I believe enough in the good providence of God to ask: Why has this conflict—a conflict that tears us down the middle in families, congregations, denominations, nations—why has this conflict shown up with such ferocity? What does God want us to learn as a people? What does God want to teach us? I am energized by the questions and therefore receive the monumental dilemma about how to be faithful Christ-followers with our sexuality as a gift. God is calling us to grow in faith and faithfulness."
