Nadia Brings Queers, Gays, and Lesbians To an Evangelical Party

The above video was posted by Nadia on her Facebook page (If you can’t see it, click on “Post” above; WordPress doesn’t always load Facebook videos correctly). It’s her submission to The Nines, a online “conference” hosted by Leadership Network. In their request for submissions, LN wrote this:

There is no greater and faster shift in culture today than the swing towards the acceptance of same-sex marriage. Church leaders need to determine the right path moving forward; loving and ministering to the LGBT community, while at the same time holding-fast to a theological position (held by most)  that prohibits the practice of homosexuality.

So, as you can see, Nadia is cutting against the grain on this.

Kudos, friend.

Speaking at The Nines

Should a guy like me use my blog to pimp myself to speak at The Nines, a fairly conservative, evangelical event, already stacked with White Guys, many of whom have Facial Hair?

Probably not. Instead, I think we should all go on there and vote for Rachel Held Evans, Eliacin Rosario-Cruz, and others who break the mold.

Well, that’s what I’ve done, but I won’t hold it against you if your clicker clicks my button, too.
