Merry Christmas Eve from Kimberly’s homosexual lifestyle!   I’ve awoken unduly excited that it’s Christmas Eve considering: Thing 1 is out of town (having an AMAZING trip – thank you Kari) I will get to see Thing 2 for only a couple of hours (every moment is awesome) My home is quiet (but all spiffed up [Read More...]

When the happiest time of year is not that damn happy.

Untitled-1

As some of you know I have the honor of facilitating an online community of spiritual practice and fellowship. I know it seems like just a silly, online gimmick but I have come to know this time and “place” as quite real and deeply moving. Friends, it seems that we are indeed in a dark [Read More...]

Tonight we light the third candle representing joy. And so I pause. One year ago today I awoke for the first time in my life under a roof that I put over my own head. Joy, oh joy seemed so reluctant, resentful and recalcitrant but I knew, we both knew, that it was no longer [Read More...]

Hi there friends, I am writing today to admit I have hit a bit of a creative frustration wall in my blogging life.

Angry-key

Apparently very few people bother to click the cute little tab up there called Comment Covenant so it is time to share it right out loud as a blog post.

Today, the Internet is a place where all Americans have an equal voice—no matter the color of our skin, size of our wallets, or content of our beliefs. Right now, a proposal in Washington would end the Internet as we know it. It will create fast lanes for those who pay—and slow lanes for the rest [Read More...]

God is not your cosmic vending machine

prayer1

I have seen an inordinate amount of holier-than-thou hijinks in my social media feed lately and really needed to revisit some theological touch points that keep me walking on the weird and wonderful Way. Stomach turning shenanigans like “just pray, pray real hard and trust that God will save you from the sin of  homosexuality” or “No matter who [Read More...]
