So, when does the easier start? We are approaching two years since his death and while the haze and fog may have lifted and I may have done the work to find myself again, it isn't any easier. I still drive by his old house, now with a new owner. It will always be his house.

As the curtain closes, Amazing Grace gets a standing ovation, with shouts and tears to boot. Maybe, I missed something. Maybe, I don't understand. It's okay that I don't like it because someone else did. But for me, it is not enough. It's too trapped in "history" to acknowledge the history that resides inside us.

Lisa Condie

It is the essence of the human experience to push the boundaries of what is, and believe that there is something else, sight unseen, that could be. It happens every day. Falling in love, choosing to have a child, buying a home or moving to a foreign country, it's all a leap of faith.

When the founders of our nation landed on the shores of Cape Cod, it was with the pursuit of religious freedom. All the other truths we've fought for since that time, stemmed from this same quest.

The Baptism of Grief

The hope of resurrection can never be a naïve wish to recover what once was. To long and pray for resurrection is to hope that by grace the fabric of our lives, our being together, might take some new shape and texture that cannot now be seen or perhaps even sensed.

The story of the church and LGBT rights is also my story. I first came back to church as a gay, recovering alcoholic. The church taught me that I was beautifully and wonderfully made; and that to love myself and care for myself was a form of gratitude to my Creator. Years later, after I had been with my partner for 11 years, I was married in the Episcopal church we now attend, and It was one of the most moving events of my life.
