Bishop Robinson

How are you supporting Bishop Gene Robinson?

Are you praying for him daily?

Have you written him a letter of support?

Are you naming him in the "prayers of the people" at your church?

Are you starting conversations about his prophetic presence?

I was shocked again yesterday when he was asked in an interview on NPR to respond to the claim that he is distracting the world from more important needs and just drawing attention to his one issue.

How long will GLBT people be seen as a distracting issue?

What will it take to realize that we are people?

Is it that hard to believe that we are faithfully living out discipleship but are being oppressed by discrimination and fear and hate?

I thank God that I am living at the same time as Bishop Robinson and can learn from him and support him.
