Amazing stuff is happening already in 2013. Momentum continues to build for the affirmation of LGBT people in the church and for marriage rights in the country. It all starts with a few brave souls coming out, and then it becomes an iterative process: people speak up, which gives more people courage to come out, which changes hearts and minds of loved ones, which creates more allies to speak up...and the cycle continues.
It's funny how sometimes there are things to celebrate in life even as other parts of life seem to go awry. Today has been crap-tacular. More to come (not today) on why; for now, all I want to do is share a pic of Archie. He's the best damn bully dog I know.
