Counseling: Same-Sex Attraction

How to you counsel a student who says they are gay or who has same-sex attraction?  This is not an easy one, but it is a super important topic that we need to be ready to walk with students through as youth leaders.  What do you say?  If a student has trusted you enough to share this with you, you need to show them the love of Christ.  You need to be Jesus to them.  How do you do that?  Hopefully this podcast will help!
