The title says it all. Since I'm gay, ordained and out, I thought I should bring up the subject.
This is an open post for ordained gay men and lesbians. What are your challenges? What could help you in your ministry? What has been offered to help that doesn't help? What advice would you give a gay man or lesbian entering ministry today? You may post anonymously if you leave a real email address. As always, these are confidential but I might email you to confirm or to ask a follow-up.
This is not an opening for debating homosexuality; there is place for that elsewhere and it rarely produces anything constructive. I'm offering a space for a little constructive sharing. Argumentative and trolling comments will be deleted.
(Bisexuals are welcome too, because there's little forum for bisexuals, but I think they have a different situation.)
