Haven't been in All Saints much lately so hadn't noticed this thread, but reading it has reduced me to tears (I'm probably just all emotional because I'm preg...)

There are so many LGB people who I owe so much to, for spiritual support, for friendship, for affection without an agenda. That includes some amazing priests, and some wonderful shipmates.

And I shot a man in Tesco, just to watch him die.

Glad to know it helps! And yay for being engaged!

The plural of "anecdote" is not "data", YMMV, limited-time offer, IANAL, no purchase required, and the state of CA has found this substance to cause cancer in laboratory aminals

I value my friends enormously including those who happen to be gay. I hate it when I see them being so hurt by the church. Hurting one part of the body of Christ hurts all of us it seems to me. I hope our LGBT shipmates know how loved and valued they are here. [Votive]

I was in Nashville last weekend at the annual conference of Gay Christian Network. 364 folks (LGBT* and straight) turned up to fellowship, support and love one another.

Tony Campolo spoke. Derek Webb sang and an executive director of a former Exodus affiliate in Canada spoke about bridge building and fostering "spacious places" within evangelicaldom.

What stuck with me was a word from a straight, punk pastor of an emergent church in Detroit who got up and encouraged us to not fight the church or hate the church but rather to *be* the church.

The breezes of change are starting to blow.

Bless you all.
