Yet behind this lies a lifetime of “lived theology” that informs her life and her work, both inside and outside the

Instead of ministering out of God's love and compassion, the church has often ministered to the Queer community out of a deep-rooted fear. Why do we administer hatred instead of allowing the balm of the Holy Spirit's tender care to define our actions? The integrity of the gospel message has been hurt by the way many of us have wielded the power we have been given.

His goal of filling the pews with theologically and biblically literate Christians is a much-needed
