God, Gays, Autism and Embodiment

EmbodimentWhat’s it like raising a child on the autism spectrum? Or being married to an adult on the spectrum? In an extended special segment, Amy and Christian Piatt talk about living with these and other realities, as well as how Church deals (or sometimes doesn’t) with special needs. We look into an online resource for autistic people and those who love them, created by none other than a young man who lives with this reality himself.

For the interview, Christian chats with gay Christian activist Justin Lee about Eugene Peterson’s PR skirmish, leaving the LGBT advocacy group he founded and how we rescue the gospel from the “God vs Gays” debate. Lee, author of TORN, started the Gay Christian Network sixteen years ago and, though he can’t talk about details, he explains what it’s like to walk away from a nonprofit you’ve poured yourself into for much of your life.

Finally, after Amy gets her dance on, we talk about who we are without our professional titles and roles, and the emotional challenges that arise when they go away.
