The ABCs of Love for Health, Justice and Liberty for All Life: Our Heart’s Wisdom Points Us Beyond Personal Violence & Planetary Exploitation

A draft of The ABCs of Love for Health, Justice and Liberty for All Life: Our Heart’s Wisdom Points Us Beyond Personal Violence & Planetary Exploitation is posted at www.freedomwise.com. I seek others to enhance its content and presentation in print and other media because this material will be most completely helpful when produced collaboratively. The material promotes dialogue among people of all paths of faith in overcoming the obstacles that fear has fabricated as false yet persuasive excuses for not sharing the power of divine love as Jesus shared it -- without reservation and extended to everyone. The ABCs of love liberate our hearts and minds from learned fears to allow us to discover within us the native gifts and power with which we are each endowed by our Creator and to share these gifts and power within bonds of trust beyond the ego's learned barriers of mistrust.

10 ways every church ought to combat sexual violence and domestic abuse

From the article: "It occurs to me that perhaps not all pastors realize that around one quarter of the women in their congregations have been (often silent) victims of sexual or interpersonal violence/abuse. Some of the men in their congregations have been victims too. Maybe the pastors who are aware of the horrifying statistics simply do not know what to do about it. I have compiled a list of concrete, easy things every pastor and/or church can (and ought) to do."

The Bible's Yes to Same-Sex Marriage: An Evangelical's Change of Heart

In the early 2000's, Mark Achtemeier embarked on a personal journey with the Bible that led him from being a conservative, evangelical opponent of gay rights to an outspoken activist for gay marriage and a fully inclusive church. In The Bible's Yes to Same-Sex Marriage, Achtemeier shares what led to his change of heart: the problems with excluding groups of people and the insights into the Bible's message that led him to recognize the fullness of God's love and support for LGBT persons. Readers will discover how reading snippets of Scripture out of context has led to false and misleading interpretations of the Bible's message for gay people. Achtemeier shows how a careful reading of the whole Scripture reveals God's good news about love, marriage, and sexuality for gay and straight people alike.
