Angus Praught: Great show Amy and Mitchell. Happy Pride and hope to see you at Market Days in August, when the Vancouver team visits Chicago once again!
All the best,
Thanks for this podcast - it was so much fun to hear your take on what was an amazing night! #whodoesntloveNPH?
I wanted to comment on Billy Porter's speech. He referred to his mother as "the TRUE definition of Christianity" with a willingness to embrace that which she she doesn't understand with unconditional love. As a gay Christian man I watched that speech, cried, watched it again, cried again, etc. He summarized so eloquently my own experience and that is what we need to encourage from the church: you may not understand, but love us unconditionally as you are loved. I am thankful to say that this has been my family's gift to me.
Mitchell talked about the journey, and impatience with the slow journey of others. I agree that there are people who we need to leave behind. However, we also need to continue to be patient with the slow climb of those whom we love enough to want with us when we reach "the vista" someday. The ones who truly love us are worth it.
