It’s been a minute! The pandemic got to me, as many of you also experienced. I had high hopes for this blog and creating a space for opening discussions on topics that most people never touch. But by October 2020, I lost steam. I realized, as most of you probably did too, that the pandemic wasn’t going to be this quick thing that’ll be over soon.
And so here we are…a year and half later. Still in a pandemic, still in religious spaces that don’t honor the lived experiences of many of its people.
How did we get here?
I don’t think anyone has an answer for this. If they do, I don’t know if I trust it.
But we are here, on this blog, trying to make sense of things that often don’t come in neat packages with bows on top.
I am so excited to bring my little blog baby back to life! While I haven’t posted much, I have thought often about this space and what needs to be said or brought into public discourse. In the past year and a half, I have written a thesis where the third chapter is a call for the inclusion of LGBTQ+ people in the church, outlining scriptural arguments, the history of sexuality, and our roles in the world. I have never been far from the world of religion and sexuality.
I have ideas I want to bring here but I also want to engage with people and have dialogue. I don’t want to be yelling into a void, taking up space on the interwebs that is unnecessary. So talk to me! What are the topics that interest you? What do you have questions about? What have you seen in religious spaces that relate to sexuality?
Let’s talk about it all and bring back the blog!
