Tweet Timothy Kurek is a fine story teller. I read a few chapters from his book The Cross in the Closet a few years ago when I met him at a conference we were both attending. It is admirable that a young straight man would undertake a radical experiment to confront his own homophobia and judgments on a […]
Tweet Pastor Sean does not understand apology. He just does not get it. I taught my children at a very young age how to apologize appropriately .
