I wanted to thank you. I am clergy and have spent most of my life in the church feeling as though I am standing in wrong line. The church way of thinking is one line and I am in a totally different line (talking to someone). Growing up in the Methodist Church, going to a Mennonite seminary, living for almost 20 years in a different country than the USA, having family and friends who are gay and lesbian, Buddhist and bikers, and who all over the political spectrum, it isn’t a surprise to me at all.
You reminded me that there are many standing with me. You have given me much to think about in your books, Naked Spirituality and Why Did Jesus, Moses, the Buddha and Mohammed Cross the Road? I am starting on my second read of both books, in case I missed something. Thank you for sharing your stories and your words. I will be plotting some goodness here and there (subversively, of course)
Thank you, too for the grace you showed at a recent conference toward those who are gay and lesbian. I wish my family and friends heard more voices such as yours. I am keeping you and your family in my thoughts and prayers.
