This week, I've found myself on Facebook more than usual. Usually I'm there just to maintain a couple of pages for the two faith communities I lead. I also use it to keep professional connections with other clergy in my denomination. This week was the yearly meeting of the ministers in the denomination and it was the first time clergy who have been working for acceptance and inclusion of LGBTQ in our churches went public as a movement in the denomination. I wasn't able to go to the gathering so I've been keeping up with the things on Facebook. All in all mostly positive response, though we'll see what consequences might come from some officials who would rather this disagreement and dissent not be public. There were some attempts to control and marginalise expression of the dissent.
So this is why I haven't really been here much if at all this week.
