“I am fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139:14).

It’s easy for me to sympathize with people who express confusion when I share with them that I am bisexual. 

My sexual orientation confused me for decades and continues to do so occasionally, even now.

I’ve been out as bisexual to myself and my world for about fifteen years, acknowledging that I am able to love both men and women. One of the things I have learned through these years is that being out as bi tends to make me a stranger across the spectrum of sexual orientation.

This spoken vow – of love and commitment – is my fondest memory of our wedding. What we aspired to has come to pass during our marriage.

O little town of Bethlehem, how still we see thee lie!

Phillips Brooks, 1868

In my 30 years as any advocate for God's love for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people, I've had countless conversations with those who think differently from me about God, Scripture and the place of the LGBT faithful in the church.
