Why do you want to join this group?

I would like to be able to support my sisters and brothers as they walk and struggle with life.

What do you hope to get from this group?

Friends, contacts with other spiritual LGBT folk.

Do you agree that you can be both a Christian and GBLT? Explain

Yes. I have written papers on the topic and was able to present a paper on the relationship between Jonathan and David to the Eastern Great Lakes Biblical Literature Society. I have taken 2 semesters of New Testament Greek and 4 semesters of Biblical Hebrew. In the original languages and the original contexts of the Hebrew and Christian Bibles, the claim that the Bible speaks against homosexuality is weak at best and in some places, an out and out twisting of what the Bible actually says. Know this: God loves you! God does want something from you: Love in three forms - Love of God, Love of neighbor and Love of self. It does not sound like much to give God in exchange for God's infinite love. Funny thing is that you don't even have to love God, but God loves you anyway.

Introduction

Greetings one and all! I am a seminary student with a special call to the LGBT community. I reside in North-Central Pennsylvania. My husband and I have been married for 23 years. We have 4 sons ages 9, 10, 15, and 17. Remember: God Loves You!
