Reconciling Ministry

I have friends who were gay. Lovely people. I know people have differing views on this subject, but I have studied the Scripture and looked at the history. I have heard their stories and shared in their vlives. Honestly, I think that the Biblical prohibition and the inherited lifestyle are two different things. Apples and oranges. Maybe I am wrong, and of course I shall pay the consequences at the end of time. If so. Or maybe I am right and we are forcing millions of people, Christians and non-Christian, into isolatation from the very Gospel we hold so dear. If I know anything from personal testimony, it’s that Christ’s love is for everyone. If I get in through the pearly gates, sounds likely equal opportunity to me.

The Power of Things

We put so much weight in things

Lucky socks and magic talismans

But it is not the things themselves

that make the difference,

but rather our belief in them,

and not only that

but also any power invested in them

by a Third Party.

Moses’ staff was just a staff

until touched by the hand of God.

Then it became a snake, a battle-winner

and a sea-splitter.

Anything can be amazing when

believed in and touched by the hand of the Divine.

So, believe in others, believe in yourself

and believe in God,

lift all things up to God,

so HE can work wonders in and through them.
