St. Stephen's Episcopal dedicates new window to LGBTQ community

FARGO, N.D. (Valley News Live) - St. Stephen's Episcopal church dedicated a new window in their sanctuary to the LGBTQ community on Sunday.

While many Christians disagree with supporting and embracing people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, basically anything but heterosexual, Father Jamie Parsley said he sees their acceptance as following in the way Jesus taught.

"Churches reaching out and including GLBTQ people in the congregation and doing ministry along side them is still fairly new in a lot of churches," Parsley said. "Loving God, loving your neighbor as yourself, that's really the basis for all Christian ministry as I see it and I think that's the basis for how we see GLBTQ inclusion."

They named the new window Integrity Window.
