    ArticleChristmas Trees and Menorahs

    My younger son, Elijah, was baptized last Saturday, on his second birthday. If you are familiar with Catholic guilt, you might imagine relatives wondering, what took so long? Catholic children are often baptized within the first few months of life, and I waited two years. I had always intended to do it, but it was my wife, who is Jewish,... more...

    ArticleLooking Ahead: What's Next For Our Work

    In the coming year, we expect to see more than 100 anti-LGBTQ religious refusal laws proposed across the country. These laws come in many forms, but they all have the same goal—to use religion as an excuse to discriminate against and harm others. The good news is we're a community committed to opposing such harmful... more...

    ArticleWhat does it mean to serve?

    My husband and I spent three years stationed at Fort Polk. If you’ve ever been to Fort Polk you’ll understand why we traveled, far away, as often as possible. Weekends and vacations brought us to New Orleans, Houston, Austin, and home to New York. On these breaks we eagerly slipped back into the normal life our peers lived,... more...

    ArticleUniform Justice - What Does Our Youth Think?

    At the end of the performance, a familiar-looking boy tapped my shoulder as I was packing props into a suitcase. I would guess he was about nine years old. “This one was even better than the one at PCCC,” he said to me. I was trying so hard to remember where I knew him from that his statement didn’t register at first.... more...

    ArticleParis and its Aftermath

    I recoiled in horror as I heard the initial news from Paris and as the night passed and the death toll rose, the news kept getting worse. The carnage was visible in cell phone images taken by eye witnesses. And, as our current reality unfolded over the weekend and into the beginning of this week, the long-term implications of these... more...

    ArticleBecause Houston Deserves Better

    Houston, you are an amazing place. You are the home of a thriving arts scene, a mecca of art museums and opera. You are one of the most famous cities in the wonderful, enormous state known as Texas. Not to mention, you are the home of NASA and the Johnson Space Center, where mankind’s triumphs in space travel can continue to... more...

    Last week, we hosted a unique event at Middle Collegiate Church, one of five sister ministries — including Intersections — of the Collegiate Church of New York. Featured were scenes from the internationally acclaimed one-woman show, Burq Off!, about one young woman’s autobiographical journey navigating the stormy seas... more...

    It happened at the end of recess, after the bell had rung and all the other junior-high kids had gone inside. After beating him in a schoolyard basketball game of “H.O.R.S.E.,” my beefy, mop-topped classmate, whom I’ll call Neil, hurled basketballs at my chest while his friend held my arms back so that I... more...

    ArticleIraq and Afghanistan

    Time is relentless. Sometimes hours pass in a heartbeat; other times, years unfold without our even seeming to notice. On October 15, President Obama announced a reversal in U.S. policy in Afghanistan, saying that American forces will remain until at least 2017, beyond the length of his second term in office. Back in 2008, then Senator... more...

    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...
