Is "gay Christian" an oxymoron?
Newly-widowed pastor Vanessa is an envelope-pusher who stops at the edge of too-far. When a renewed friendship opens her eyes to the way the church has failed in the "unconditional love" department, she lets her courage out of the closet. It's a risk during a vulnerable time in her life - but how can she stay safe and comfortable when her friends have endured rejection, ridicule, hatred and even physical danger at the hands of people claiming to know Christ? How can she remain silent when she has a voice and a forum?
This story is Vannie's journey. When she begins the trip she "loves the sinner but hates the sin" and thinks "gay Christian" is an oxymoron. But studying issues and debating theology are one thing; getting to know gay people as friends and learning to love, understand and appreciate them gives her new perspective. She comes to conclusions that are balanced, biblical and most of all, loving. In the process she turns her time of loneliness into a discovery of the richness of friendship.
