A Song to Share: Same Love

Now this is a song to share. I was pleased to hear this song on the radio, and I looked it up,  So now I want to share it here. I like how this song makes the point for marriage equality.  Love,  does not know boundaries.  Love between a same sex couple is the same as love between a man and a woman. It should be recognized.

Same Love Macklemore and Ryan Lewis

As stated previously in this blog, same sex attraction is not a choice, its part of one's make up the same as heterosexuality is. Society has made it something it should never be, this has made some many hide it, hide from it. Hate toward the LGBT community happens constantly.

The religious community for a large part has played a role in promoting this hiding, and promoting hate toward the LGBT community as a whole. In my view, as a Christian minister, the Bible has been misused in the process of promoting hate and exclusion. As stated in the song if hate is preached, the Holy Water becomes poison.  That is a crime.

This is why some many walk away from "religion"  Some from God.

The love I experience is not cheap, its not wrong.  The love I experience is wonderful, beautiful, as special as that of any straight couple.

God gives love, God IS love, so by this definition love between two men, or two women is a God thing.

I Corinthians 13 The love chapter of the Bible includes

Love is kind, love is patient, love does not take into account a wrong suffered. . love never fails, Fath, Hope love, the greatest of these is LOVE.

Monday Medley: Disturbia

The song of the week is Disturbia by Rihanna.  Its a Disturbia kind of Monday

A typical weekend for me, work.  its time for another edition of Gay in the News, so be looking for that in the next few days. Making plans for the fall semester at the seminary, and I'm trying to decide the best way to start out.  Online or on campus. There is a course  that is part of my program that is offered Tuesday evening from 5 to 7, its a 1.5 credit course.  Might be the right class to start with, I think I will take an online course for the winter.  Stay tuned for the plan.

Hope you enjoy this weeks selection.

Monday Medley, Give Me Everything.

Another Monday! It rolls around regularly doesn't it?  A busy week ahead, I'm doing three nights on call this week.  The extra on-call is on Wednesday night, I hope it won't be too busy.  I am told the single most unhealthy thing I do is over night on-call! Sleep interruption, deprivation is very unhealthy.  I hope I can get to the place where my work is day time and restore that natural rhythm of life. At least that is a goal! 

Today I want to share a song.. Give Me Everything

Good Monday today.  A busy weekend, Saturday in Williamsburg with Joe, a picture of my newest  acquisition is below.  I love it when I find a deal on something I have wanted.  The outlet malls are great!   Sunday I worked, a busy day,  several calls, sometimes all you can be is present in a situation. there are no words that bring comfort.  Its hard sometimes!

I have rediscovered a group I have enjoyed in the past, and I want to share a song of there's here today. The group is Switchfoot, the song is "This is your Life"

"Behold I stand at the door and knock, if anyone hears my voice and open the door, I will come into him and fellowship with him, and he with me" Revelation 3:20
