I talk a lot about how I believe that loving a GLBT person is what changes many people's minds about equality and inclusion. It's no secret I think that way because that's what happened to me.
Recently, I discovered a blog by a woman named Carol Boltz. Carol was married for 30 years to Ray Boltz, a Christian musician and songwriter who sold over 4 million records in his career. He was greatly loved and respected in the evangelical Christian community...
And then he came out.
Carol's blog, My heart goes out..., talks about her journey from shocked spouse to ardent GLBT rights activist. Her journey is familiar to me, because it was my journey too---but I didn't have a very public profile in the evangelical world. Carol writes with grace, love, and humor about having to rethink everything about her life and her faith.
In my view, she's modeling what Christ asked us to do. Check her out.
