hello keaton, do you have any tips for rekindling your faith when you're lgbt+? i've kind of fallen off the wagon as of late and i just need help find ways to get back in touch i guess idk, how this works..
faith often feels like stumbling around in the dark, especially if you’re trying to get back into it, and even more so when you’re an lgbt+ person trying to get back into it. i don’t know if i can give you methods of worship, because i’ve always felt like worship is such a personal, one-on-one thing, but daily prayer is helpful for me. i do know that god loves your soul, he appreciates your desire to get back in touch with your faith, and he’s with you wherever the journey takes you.
if you’re the kind of person who would appreciate reading recs, patrick cheng’s radical love: an introduction to queer theology is a good starting place for examining what lgbt theology means and how truly encompassing god’s love is. this website has several gay affirming interpretations of the bible, and each section has links to sermons and other reading material. and trans man austen hartke has a really cool series of videos (youtube autoplay warning) talking about the intersection between being transgender and being christian
