Your Chance to Support Caregiving, Celibate Vocations, A Gorgeous Pooch, AND Libresco’s Birthday!

do a mitzvah, man... I’m a big fan of the blog A Queer Calling, and I’m lucky enough to know Lindsey and Sarah in real life.  They write thoughtfully and generously about their experience offering learning how to live their vocation of love in a partnership, and they’ve placed hospitality/offering love to others at the center of their relationship. ...Right now, Lindsey and Sarah are having a rough time — Sarah has Menière’s disease, which affects balance and hearing. She’s getting a surgery … [Read more...]

A Little Free Library: Read the Comments!

Via Prince of Petworth:Hi all- I live at this house and it’s my free library. We’re a house of returning citizens (ex-offenders) and we made this library (and do other things) to be a positive force in our neighborhood. The artist, a friend of ours, created a painting scheme that looks like row houses that are the covers of DC-based books. We also put up the Free Minds logo (a book club that works with kids who via Title 16 have to go to adult prison as juveniles) because they’ve supported so … [Read more...]

Benedict Option, Part Three: It Takes a Hyattsvillage

One of the neat things about Libresco's "Benedict Option" gathering (for what this actually was, see here and here) was that we had a few people from the growing Catholic neighborhood in Hyattsville, MD. This is a little place on the Green Line (yay), an attempt to build a community where Catholic life is visible, normal, and beautiful.

“Our Children: Gay Christians Can’t Afford to Be Divided”: I’m at Level Ground

with not my strongest piece, but I think the underlying point is necessary. One thing I wish I'd added is that gay people who accept the Christian sexual ethic are both the ones serving our neediest and the ones in need: We too have been rejected by our parents and even kicked out of our homes for coming out, and have suffered other economic consequences--sometimes both the economic injustices associated with being gay and economic injustices associated with celibacy or unmarried kinship. We're … [Read more...]

Not Only Avoiding Unjust Discrimination, But Supporting Gay People’s Vocations: A “Gay and Catholic” Demi-Polemical Book Extra

Over the past couple weeks I've had a lot of opportunities to hang out with lgbt Christians who accept and strive to follow the historical Christian sexual ethic. It's been a great chance to see the diversity of our community. But we also have a lot in common; and one depressing thing many of us turned out to have in common was experience of discrimination due to our sexual orientation. I admit I was surprised to learn just how many celibate lgbt Christians had been fired, denied jobs, … [Read more...]
