I’m creating this blog because I want an interactive place to discuss LGBT spirituality. That’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender spirituality.
Visitors to my website, JesusInLove.org, keep sending me emails full of theological insights and true-life stories. I hope that this blog will allow many more people enter into these ongoing conversations about God.
As I write this, we’re still trying to get the graphics right on this blog. Be patient if something looks weird. We’re working on it.
My guiding principles for this blog:
1. Stick to the subject: queer spirituality.
2. Post consistently at least once or twice a week (after the official launch).
3. Honor Jesus.
4. I know there’s something else…
As I prepared to launch the Jesus in Love blog, the guiding principles of many other groups flickered through my mind:
The Girl Scout pledge: “I promise to do my best to help other people…” Yeah, yeah, yeah. Too obvious.
A marketing guru’s take on how to make it in Hollywood: “For an entertainment property to be successful over the long term, we believe it has to consistently deliver a fantasy to the core audience.” I must have lived in L.A. too long , because this actually makes sense to me.
The Three Rules of Kayaking: “Be prepared. Stuff happens. Bring beer.” Right—except I don’t like beer. I’ll bring a sense of humor instead.
Guiding principle #4. Have fun.
What might Jesus say?
Let there be Light!
