Dear Council of Bishops, I read your letter to the church this morning. In it you
claim that your proposal is a way forward that commits to “having a different

admit that every time ...

Oregon that refused to bake a cake for a lesbian wedding and was subsequently
fined over $100,000 for violating Oregon’s law. I have recently posted a video
of a man who called a lot of gay bakeries to ...

What it means to be poor and how to help
No, this post is not about
sexuality issues. It’s about something I think is much more important – what it
is like to be poor in America. It is also about me needing help – not for
myself, but for a family that I have grown to know and love. I am not poor, ...

Story
Tagline
A pastor rediscovering ministry.
Introduction
I am an ordained elder in the North Texas Annual Conference currently on sabbatical. I love books, music, sitting around talking with friends, the Bible, theology, teaching, cats, dogs, science fiction and fantasy, my kids and my grandkid!

I lost my husband and best friend in March 2014. I still love and miss him, and I am trying to figure out who I am and what life is about.
Bragging rights
Three awesome kids - a writer, an artist and a musician - and the most amazing granddaughter ever!
