    Hi, Andrew. I hope you have a great trip!
    I just finished reading “Love is an Orientation” and I want you to know how much it meant to me. Thank you for being so bold, so honest, and so wise. Reviewed it on my blog today: http://rachelheldevans.com/love-orientation.

    you are not alone. you are not alone. much much love.
    i am scared but i try to put God first in all i do.
    i too have a yearning, a love for the lgbtq community. and i have pain unutterable with the tension between lgbtq and the christian church…
    i read most of your book… SPLENDID!
    thank you for letting me know someone out there exists who cares about this tension and divide and about our friends known and unknown in the lgbtq community.


    love and truth
