I am thankful to be part of an intentional community (Urban Village of Pasadena), which, possessing varying points of view, extends authentic love to the marginalized, oppressed, and painfully mistreated gay community.
I am thankful to be a member of Pasadena Mennonite Church, which, possessing varying points of view is committed to extending (and beginning to embody) authentic love to the marginalized, oppressed, and painfully mistreated gay community.
I had always mourned the reality that the graduate school I chose to attend did not...or...at least not so openly.
And yet, I recently read two articles in Fuller Seminary's student newspaper that caught my attention.
Reflections of a Gay Christian by Jennifer Lingenfelter
Reflections of a Father by Sherwood Lingenfelter
I doubt that Fuller will change its position on homosexuality anytime soon. But articles like these increase my hope. And my hope that they too, will find bold ways of offering acceptance, inclusion and love to their gay students and those to come.
