Maybe life really is just that simple.

Reflections: I Was A Gay Baptist College Student

December 18, 2011

I met up with an old friend from my Christian college last weekend. The fellowship was wonderful. He graduated with a BA in Theology the year before I finished my BA in Christian Counseling. A large bit of what we discussed was realizing we were gay, that we couldn’t change, and dealing with all the […]

“Include Me”

June 12, 2011

This is the song I have been searching for but didn’t know existed.  I knew there had to be a recording artist out there writing songs about the struggle to be Christian and gay.  Jennifer Knapp was part of what I was looking for.  (She came back to the music scene and came out at […]

Humanizing God

April 15, 2011

There’s a South Park episode called “Christian Rock Hard” that mocks contemporary Christian music.  Basically, Cartman takes love songs and turns them into songs about Jesus.  It’s hilarious, because it’s mostly true!  Often, it’s hard to distinguish a secular love song from a song directed toward God. I know personally, I used to have a […]

Pondering the Elusive God

April 12, 2011

Today, thoughts of God fill my head.  It wasn’t too long ago that I was fine declaring myself an agnostic, except this desire in my heart to break out in song worshiping God didn’t seem to leave, and that intrigued and confused me.  One night awhile back, at a time when I was almost sure […]

This Year, Christmas is Really Special

December 18, 2010

I just reviewed my entry from December 2009, and I must say, I’m pretty proud of myself.  This time last year, my main hope was that by now, present day, I’d be out and open about my relationship with Nikki.  When I wrote that post, I feared that I would never get the courage to […]

“We’ve had to eat beans!”

August 12, 2010

It’s been slightly over two months since I came out to my family.  It started out really rocky, but I believe things are gradually progressing upward. My extended family has been AWESOME.  Aunts, uncles, and cousins have offered me their homes, their ears (and sometimes their beer), and I have never felt so supported and […]

“I sent the damn email.”

June 12, 2010

I did it.  I really did it.  I didn’t think I could do it, but I did it.  I came out to my parents. This has been the hardest experience of my entire lifetime.  As a family, we’ve gone through several tragedies, but personally, this has been perhaps the most painful thing to happen to […]

Mom Reexamined

February 4, 2010

I was finally, for the first time in my out-to-myself-and-a-few-other-friends life (whew!), beginning to get up the courage to come out to my mother.  I feel like when I come out to my mom, then I can truly consider myself OUT.  And I want that so bad.  My best friend, who frequently chats with mom, […]

To the Wanderers

January 29, 2010

A good majority of the visits to this blog are people searching for things like, “Love God, love people” or “fulfill the law.”  It makes sense why Google would send them here; it is the title of my blog after all. If you are one of those searchers, you probably quickly figure out that this […]

Mom

January 21, 2010

So, last post I was all geared up and ready to come out to my mother.  I really thought it was gonna happen, honest.  But… it hasn’t happened yet, mostly out of fear of how my dad will react.  But even though my mother doesn’t officially know… she knows. Her asking my best friend.  Her […]
