The episode you've been waiting for: we invite LGBTQ+ Christians to speak for themselves. First, Bridget Eileen Rivera - aka @thetravelingnun - joins us to explore HEAVY BURDENS: her book on how the Church harms queer people (and how we must do better). Next, Marcus Mason-Vivit joins us to talk about growing up black and queer, and what his faith looks like today.
JR. lives in Dallas, TX with his wife Amanda. In addition to exploring the wonders that are the Lone Star state, JR. is the teaching pastor at Catalyst Community Church, a writer and blogger. His book, Empathy for the Devil, is available from InterVarsity Press. He's haunted by the Batman, who is in turn haunted by the myth of redemptive violence.
