LGBTQ Inclusion

My path to reconciling my faith and sexuality has been long and winding; however, it has always been guided by the Bible. Wrestling with scripture is core to my faith development, theological exploration and way of being in the world. This journey includes difficult terrain, and I offer myself, my story and the resources I have found helpful to those traversing this wild and beautiful landscape.
