Senior Thesis Statement: Christians are called to love members of the LGBTQ+ community as Christ loves: out of humility, through relationships, and with faith in the transforming power of the gospel.

Brief Description of Senior Thesis: In light of the current political and cultural climate, it essential for Christians to revisit what we believe in regards to sexuality. We must evaluate how we act towards people who struggle with their sexuality in light of the truth and the freedom the gospel offers.

What advice or encouragement would you give to younger students at Westminster?
Stress can easily overtake you, but remember to look at the grand scheme of things. These are just a few years of your life. Work hard, yes, but invest deeply in others and remind yourself that your identity and value do not lie in your performance. Nothing you can do will diminish or elevate you in the sight of God if you are bought by his blood.

Please share a funny memory or highlight from your time at Westminster:

Favorite Bible Verse: “Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor…Live in harmony with one another. Do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly.  Never be wise in your own sight. Repay no one evil for evil, but give thought to do what is honorable in the sight of all. If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all.” Romans 12:10, 16-18

Prayer Request: Please pray that God would give me a healthy Christian community in which to struggle and grow as I go out into the world, courage to be bold about my faith even in adversity, and the humility needed to take correction and befriend all kinds of people.
