    ArticleDragged To Drag: We Lip-Sync For The Lord

    Growing up as a gay male in the 60’s and 70’s, with the wider LGBT community just beginning to open the door to the great closet, the culture of our invisible community was hidden from me. Living and growing in the world as it was, I often felt like I had been kidnapped and forced to live amongst a people that were not my... more...

    ArticleWhat Everett C. Parker Gave Me

    Editor’s note: Everett Parker was tough and feisty. He had to be in order to take on the racism during the civil rights movement and beyond through his pioneering work on behalf of the public interest in media. But as his wife, Geneva, became ill towards the end of her life, I was privileged to witness his softer side as he cared... more...

    ArticleGood News in a Weary World

    Lately, it has seemed that each new day brings another discouraging headline, making it increasingly difficult to remain buoyant when there so much sludge to weigh us down. Whether it be dysfunction in Washington or carnage in the Middle East, persistently unsettling economic news, or the impact of climate change on the world’s... more...

    ArticleThe Future of Theatre for Social Change

    Two weeks ago I visited my alma mater, SUNY Geneseo, as one of three guest artists invited to provide workshops on what I call theatre for social change. I describe this as theatre that explicitly addresses social issues in a constructive way. In my experience it usually engages an audience through more than just the performance - ie... more...

    ArticleDr. Ben Carson and Islam

    With his poll numbers rising, increased attention has been directed at Republican Presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson. His reserved, mild-mannered approach to campaigning has been a huge contrast to the bellicose front runner Donald J. Trump, causing deeply conservative Republicans, especially evangelicals, to gravitate to him as an... more...

    ArticleHow My Queer Son Became More Than A Blessing To Me

    When I was pregnant with my son, my thoughts were muffled with unspeakable joy, of course, coupled with a touch of fear; as well as the sounds of 2am feedings, dirty diapers, fatigue, birthday parties filled with screaming crumb snatchers, 3 meals a day, playing games, lots of questions, and being able, by God's grace and mercy,... more...

    ArticleSyrian Refugees

    Recent technology upgrades at Intersections have caused sporadic gaps in our communications. Upon returning from a week-long conference in Washington, DC, I learned that the following blog was never posted. Sadly, the issues raised in this blog have only become more pressing over the past several days. We decided to go ahead and post it... more...

    ArticleA Meeting to Spark Hope, Insight, and Action

    Twenty-six of us sat in a circle at the back of the Amistad Chapel in the United Church of Christ’s national offices in Cleveland. Our group consisted of current and retired police officers, clergy, arts administrators, and community activists. Many were eager to speak, but some were there just to listen, to get a better sense of... more...

    ArticleTransgender Murders, A National Crisis

    In this Season of Trump, it is easy to miss news stories that speak volumes of who we are as a society and how we need to shift our priorities if all God’s children are to be guaranteed the safety, security and access to opportunity that so many of us take for granted. Voices that have been historically under-represented become... more...

    ArticleJesus' Mother Isn't Gonna Like That

    One of the things I love most about being Catholic is our unapologetic devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary. I’ve always envisioned her to be the ultimate mother—she’d have to be wouldn’t she? God chose her to be the mother of our Savior. And by all accounts in the Bible, Mary was pretty awesome.... more...
