Gay and Christian?

IMG_0647Ever wonder what a conversation between a conservative Christian and a gay Christian might sound like?  In this months podcast I’m doing something a bit different; instead of me doing the interviewing, I’m being interviewed.  An old friend of mine from my college Bible study group asked if he could interview me and while I felt anxious about being vulnerable with someone who considers my love for my wife to be a sin, it felt important to do the interview in order to give voice to the hope that you can be LGBTQ and Christian.  I want to give a disclaimer that he does ask questions that might triggor people who have been harmed by the church and he also uses language like I “chose to be gay” which of course I disagree with.  I hope my words resinate with you and perhaps even help give you language for your own journey.  Click here to listen.

  1. Thanks for sharing in this interview, Candice. I found it both helpful and interesting. I thought you both did well communicating with each other, seeing as you came from different places, and dealt with the inevitable tensions in a very gracious manner. I continue to listen and learn. Best regards. Bernard.
