In the Beginning

by

My mom was having none of this kind of Christianity. She promptly brought me to Glide Church in San Francisco and told me, honey – these are God’s children and love God as much as those folks back at church. Well. If you have ever been to Glide Church you know what I saw. FOLKS.Real Folks. At all levels of elevation and depravation. That day, I met Francis, who in a way is my St. Francis. She is a woman (very recently) who wears tall high heals and red dresses and red lipstick and claimed to LOVE the Lord. We joined that day, and I sat next to Francis and learned of her recent change from man to woman. I loved her. God opened my heart to her and I prayed then and there for God to remove from my heart that spirit of judgement that many Christians are known for. And I am glad to say, that God did.

The Courage To Love #26 Love Letter

by

I think the revelation was sparked by my friends who are in divorce conversations – what I hear the most is what they want the other person to say or do that they are not saying or doing. The love is not usually in question, but communication IS in question. So. In my love and suffering for my girlfriends, I contacted a deep longing for my husband.
