It's helpful for queer Christian folks to get together and share our experiences, confusions, and concerns with each other, in order to figure out why and how we orientate ourselves within this reality that tortures and encourages us. That "God" is good, all the time. However, we are still searching for that "god" and the companion is needed and fulfilled here.
I am hoping to engage with other queer seminarians and folks and learn how they orientate themselves and develop spiritual and pastoral praxis.
