Brennan Manning introduced me to Grace and I’ve never recovered. Here’s a cool clip from an interview done for the Rich Mullins movie. Best quote is at the end:

The heart of Christianity is letting myself be loved.

Homosexuality + The Church

Many Christians wrestle with sexuality and gender identity. Perhaps you have a family member or close friend who is in a same-sex relationship, or you may be struggling to reconcile your own same-sex attraction with your commitment to Christ and your belief in the Bible as the inspired, infallible Word of God.

This issue of Light + Life draws upon the research and writings of the Study Commission on Doctrine. Because of space constraints, we can’t print much of the commission’s extensive discussion of sexuality, but please go online to fmcusa.org/scod to read more.

You know when I rise and when I fall
When I come or go You see it all
You hung the stars and you move the sea
And still You know me

I love that this song reminds me that Abba chose me. And He still choses me – despite me. That’s love.

All treasures of wisdom and things to be known
Are hidden inside your hand
And in this fortunate turn of events
You ask me to be your friend
You ask me to be your friend

And you,
You are my first
You are my last
You are my future and my past

You are the beginning and the end
