Andrew, I have something that I need to comment about and to ask your opinion on. I have two children that I love very much. My son is educated, kind and very well established in his profession. He is also gay, although not “looking” for a partner. He is very religious and in fact led us to COR. He has since been transferred to Irving, TX and I miss him so much. Brad has been influential in my spiritual growth by his deep faith in Jesus even though he is not accepted by most Chrisitans. I must admit that I was one of the “holier than thou” people and I rejected him for several years. I so regret my actions. My daughter is married to a Muslim who is very much a part of our family now, but at first I rejected him because of his difference in his religion. I now love him and his family very much. He is a Palistenian by birth and an American by choice. Please pray for his family during the crisis in Gaza. At first I thought God had surely turned His back one me since my two children were not the”norm”. I now feel chosen to have them in my family. I am blessed each day by having known them and feel called by God to have them in my family. I have grown to love so much more deeply by having known and loved them. Please pray for the World to love and accept them.
