Jim and I are jetting off to Memphis later today and Timothy is skiing in Tahoe so here’s something to hold you over till I can start blogging from Memphis tomorrow.

Next weekend I am visiting and coming out to my fundamentalist Christian parents. Your comments and analysis on Love-in-Action have been an enormous help. They took my intuitive understanding and experientially based expectations of the outcome from Love-in-Action and made them concrete.

Having been to bible school and spent 15 years repressed, I have no intention of spending more time in that endless regression.

Much appreciated.

Particularly as my parents (who pioneered 4 churchs when I was a child) will react as though my being gay is equivalent to death.

It is not going to be a nice weekend!
