When Kids Come Out” a Four-Session Class for Parents of LGBT Children

When a child comes out to his/her/their family, it often raises many questions for both the child and for the family.  For example: What does it mean for the family when the child comes out to their parents?  What does it mean for the parents’ relationship to their church? What does it mean for the parents’ own faith? How do parents navigate their own “coming out” after their children have come out to them?  These questions are among those that will be addressed in a four-session class that will be held on Wednesday evenings from September 6 through September 27 at Worthington UMC, 600 High St., Worthington, 7:00 – 8:30 pm.   Look for signs directing you to the class. The Rev. Jim Waugh, retired pastor in the West Ohio Conference, will lead the group.  Jim and his wife Carol have an adult daughter Lisa who came out to them several years ago.  You can contact Jim with questions at jwaugh3 [at] mac.com.
