2nd Printing of Love is an Orientation

I just found out yesterday that Love is an Orientation is going into its second printing after only a month and a half! That’s really quick … Let’s keep this movement’s momentum accelerating forward so much so that neither community would be able to ignore our new paradigms of what it means to peacefully and [Read More...]

Other Faith’s Love Love

I have been touched recently by the amount of non-evangelical, even non-Christian people that have read Love is an Orientation and thought it worthwhile enough to personally write me. I have received numerous emails telling me of touching stories and examples of how my book has made a direct impact on people’s sphere’s of influence; [Read More...]

[Addendum on June 16, 2009: Do you ever find yourself being labled into a socially constructed group because someone on the outside doesn't understand you? I tackle this question in my own life after the last two conservative evangelical radio interviews have called me Emergent for no other reason than I live within, and loves [Read More...]

Oh How the Tides Turn

New Flip Camera Experiment

As you can see by my ‘mug’ looking at you in this video, I just bought a Flip Camera to start recording short bites of my life within this unique bridge building experience that the Lord has laid before us. I hope you enjoy this new way of interacting along side my written posts as [Read More...]

Why God Doesn’t Answer Prayers

This is a question that has been on my heart a lot recently for a few different reasons. I have prayed for many things in my life that have not been answered—some of which are theologically important to me: Why am I me and given the inherent right that comes with being a straight, white [Read More...]

The Culture War

Part of my job is to be aware of, and keep a close eye on everything that is going on around the country within GLBT circles as well as within conservative circles.

Please Forgive Me, My Blogging Homies!

It has been quite a doozie of a past week. As I try to learn boundaries (which I’m obviously not too good at) in what to say yes to (which I’m very good at), and what to say no to (which needs great improvement), all of my free time recently has been spent sleeping and [Read More...]
