"'Dear God I'm gay' is offered in love to the Church and with hope. The book contains a series of letters between people, as well as meditations and prayers. It provides glimpses into their struggle for identity and integrity. The theology and spirituality expressed emerges through people wanting to be faithful to God, to each other and to themselves. This book is not an official document to be presented for agreement through the Synod of the Methodist Church. It is the work of an informal ecumenical group seeking openness in the Church." -- Preface.
