Absolutely do not miss "I'm Still Emily" ... a segment of the "In the Life" series broadcast on PBS and available online here.
Here's what Richard at "Caught by the Light" had to say:
"I am Emily" is a profound witness to what our children continue to have to face.Emily is a faithful Christian. Emily prayed for five years for God to make her no longer gay. Emily is 15.This is a powerful piece on what happened when she came out to her family, friends, school, community, and church in a rural town in Iowa.As a Christian priest and pastor, I ask you to watch the conversation she has with her minister. It's a study worthy of a thousand posts and a million comments ... I pray for Emily and every youth who struggles as she does with exile, even in her church that she wants to call home.
Pray without ceasing!
