Life in Death

Mk. 13:24-32

Death comes, tribulation come. Many years ago this was my last Sunday in my former denomination--within a week I would be removed, and banished because of my sexality--the end came--depression came, death came to my way of life--all relationships I had basically ended, but then came resurrection--through my years as sex worker, counselor, and now priest--God brought new life. I learned that there are new wine skins for the new wine, and that resurrection comes in the midst of death. Deo Gratias! Thanks be to God!
