The Courage to Be Queer

Front Cover
Wipf and Stock Publishers, Sep 18, 2015 - Religion - 152 pages

That twitching and itching for something more will consistently be present until we step out of our closets and into the Queer. The Courage to Be Queer is about the wildness and beauty of an indescribable and uncontainable God. What is the Queer calling us to be? We are to be the ones shouting for justice. We are to be the ones dancing for freedom. We are to be the ones dreaming for hope. We are to be the ones . . .

In the midst of the spectacle of it all, there will be those observers who hear the knocking and lean in. Will you open the door?
