Catching Up!

So, since I last joined this blog, much has happened.

1. I am no longer the only out gay Presbyterian pastor in a pulpit in OR.  I left St. Andrew's on April 30, 2017.

2. I am now (part time) the Spiritual Life Director of L'Arche Portland.  This is a spiritual/religious community with or without people with intellectual disabilities;

3. I am starting a new church of Presbyterians.  It is either going to be called Community of Pilgrims/the Pilgrim, or Church of Pilgrims/the Pilgrim.

Much more to come!

Youtube Clip and the book, Practicing Pilgrimage

Here's my youtube.com clip for Practicing Pilgrimage.

Remember: this pilgrimage "thing" is the way I understood and understand the process of "coming out" of my or one's LGBT or Q closet: it is a process, a way of moving out of the confining closet of living as a closeted gay man, to living out free from these self-imposed and culture-imposed confines.

Oh: and also please consider purchasing the book! https://www.amazon.com/Practicing-Pilgrimage-Becoming-Pilgrim-People/dp/1620329484/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1483574390&sr=1-1&keywords=practicing+pilgrimage
