A radical Way of being

Christians are called to a Radical Faith. Christians, when they live as though their baptisms matter, are radicals. Jesus was a radical. A radical is one who advocates and works for fundamental or revolutionary changes in current practices, conditions.

Remember your baptism!

During his annual visit to our church today, the bishop will baptize Evanna. She’s a tall, somewhat plump transgender woman around age twenty… Our church has one other trans member, my sixteen-year-old son, Max… This is a safe place, yet instinctively I watch people’s reactions toward LGBTQ people. I look out for Evanna as if she were my own child.
