The following is part of an email received recently from Pastor Bill:
I read this blog today from a friend and I thought of you – https://www.theflamingyeats.com/the-blog/2019/3/11/turning-the-corner. Susan is married to Lindsay, a former Cru staff worker; both were key leaders in their evangelical churches. I found this blog so interesting because it highlights that in her life, the shame of the conservative evangelical approach to LGBTQ is what kept her from God, and as soon as she named her attractions and lived into them, she experienced a ton of freedom and spiritual growth. That ties in a bit to the ‘good fruit’ comment I made in the last email – about how so much of the conservative fruit is bad and so much of the progressive fruit I’ve seen is good. More on that at a later time.
Grace and peace to you
How did the shame of the conservative evangelical approach to LGBTQ keep her from God?
How is the conservative fruit bad in this regard and the progressive fruit good?
(Perhaps I should have asked Pastor Bill more questions in preparation for this blog. Maybe he can expound on it here, too.)
